Tonight -- from 5 to 8 pm -- Shauna Kupetz of JAM and Traci Zitzer of Urban Table Larder (a cool provisions store within JAM) are co-hosting their second Miller Market on 1st Street,, which Kupetz maintains is not a regular farmers market but rather a community event bringing art and artisanal food together.
Held in the parking lot of JAM at 6938 E 1st Street in Old Town Scottsdale, Miller Market is a relaxed, family-friendly event showcasing local farmers and local and regional food vendors as well as artists and artisans who specialize in hand-made, re-purposed, recycled and found objects.
Tonight's market will also feature a food truck and live music by John Erwin. Kupetz says the market's debut last week was a huge success, as was Foodie Friday -- a roundup of six food trucks that took place at JAM the following night. All six trucks sold out of food. If you're doing Scottsdale's Art Walk tonight, you might want to mosey on over to Miller Market on 1st.
