Being on the vendor circuit for about two years in L.A. I have come to enjoy exploring new venues and markets. We have had that honor this summer to be a part of Artwalk and a new marketplace at The Gallery 1548. I do have a special place for the I call our home base as it was the Caracol Marketplace that helped launch us.
Here’s our line up of events we’ll be at the first two weeks of August. You can always find us at the Eagle Rock Plaza Farmer’s Market on Sundays from 9 am - 2 pm too, starting August 11.
Kicking us off in August is the San Gabriel Mission High School Family Festival. Tierra will be performing. There will be an eclectic selection of vendors selling their wares, including some SGMHS alum. We’ll be here along with ThoT Creations. Stop by our booth.
Saturday we head out to Seal Beach Winery for our 2nd chocolate tasting. Summer Affair event will serve up food by Pollo Land and wine flight from Seal Beach Winery’s own selection, as well as an olive oil tasting by Temecula Olive Oil Company. Pre-sale tickets via eventbrite will save you money. Otherwise pay $20 at the door. http://summerwine-efbevent.eventbrite.com/
Sunday is Caracol Marketplace 9th Anniversary. Join us at Tropico de Nopal by celebrating independent artists and artisans. We have over 20 artisans selling hand made products that range from beauty, art, unique and one-of-a-kind accessories, home furnishings, and food. It’s going to be a wonderful celebration with Atabey performing a live set. We’ll also have two workshops on health and wellness.

Join us for the Art Walk Channel’s second installment at this venue. Headlining is Mexico 68 - MEXICO68, is a (12) piece afrobeat band based out of Los Angeles’ Eastside, California and is heavily influenced by the polyrhythmic sounds of Nigerian Recording Artist, Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Africa 70. Dominating the underground airwaves far and wide, MEXICO68 juxtaposes Chicano funk with the body-moving and elucidating vibes of Fela. “Afrobeat will be one of the musics of the future” – Miles Davis Afrobeat no go die!
