Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

To celebrate its second year in downtown Phoenix, the Urban Grocery & Wine Bar is looking for a little color. 

 The market is currently looking for mural concepts that "capture the essence of the Downtown Phoenix community and our mission of making good food accessible to all." According to the official announcement, the design should include the tractor from the market logo and an arrow pointing toward the main entrance on Pierce Street.

Designs will be accepted through October 20 and voted on via the Downtown Market Facebook page starting on October 10. 


Submissions, including a photo/sample piece, a two to three sentence bio, can be sent to Natalie Morris (natalie@foodconnect.org). Three finalists will be the Market's Facebook audience and one artist will be chosen by the market selection committee.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
