Maker's Market

Sure, it’s the beginning of November, but is it ever too early to start your holiday shopping? We didn’t think so. Lucky for you, the Heard Museum, 2301 North Central Avenue, is offering the perfect chance to check your family, friends, and even that co-worker who you drew in the office Secret Santa exchange off your gift-giving list with its Spanish Market.

This annual mercado de las artes boasts work, including jewelry, paintings, and pottery, from over 65 artists. Speaking of pottery, this year’s Spanish Market featured artist is international lecturer Isabelle Collins, who aims to perpetuate the history and appreciation of colonial Mexican pottery.

And don’t worry about losing steam while you make your way through the Heard’s central courtyard Sunday, November 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Courtyard Café will offer appropriately themed fare to boost your energy and mariachis will play to boost your spirit. The event is free, but a $10 donation, which includes museum admission, is suggested. Visit or call 602-252-8840 for more information.

Sat., Nov. 8; Sun., Nov. 9, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., 2014
