Buy your artwork, home décor, fashion-ware, and more directly from the hands that make it!  Our artists, galleries, and vendors offer artwork, jewelry, furniture, novelties, pipes, photography sessions, clothing, yard art, and so much more!  Shop artisan candles, spices, tropical fish, antiques and vintage ware directly from our community's small businesses.

MUSIC

FOOD

We understand everything is better when there are food trucks involved!!  Every art hop you can expect to grab food off the Rolling Oasis Treat Truck.  Joining us for First Friday's in March 2022, for the warm weather, is Egg Rolls Unlimited!  Special events call for additional food trucks, so be sure to check our event calendar for details!


Specializing in a little bit of everything their menu features quesadillas, sliders, gyros, milkshakes and seasonal items like pumpkin ice cream and the best darn chili!

Egg Rolls Unlimited returns to fry up the most delicious homemade eggrolls.  Choose between pork or chicken and order them ala cart or with a side of vermicelli noodles with carrots and cabbage!  

MARKET

3rd Sunday Art Hops feature a year round vendor market.  Our market has two seasons.  November - March our vendors can be found in the CD Hall of building 100.  In April we head back outdoors with a big season Kick-Off!
