PEMBROKE — Artist Market Pembroke returns for its second showing on Saturday.

The Museum of the Southeast American Indian at UNCP is presenting the next artist market from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Entrepreneurship Incubator at 202 Main St., Pembroke, featuring local artists selling their wares. At the market’s inaugural event in September, there were more than 150 visitors, according to Alisha Locklear Monroe.

“We expect that number to grow each time,” Monroe said. “Folks are talking about it and artists are getting prepared to sell their handmade items.”

Monroe said the market is the perfect venue for artists to showcase their talents and earn revenue and it is available for artists of all backgrounds.

“This is a diverse events so we’re open to all types of artisans — not just native artists. We want three-dimensional artists, potters as well,” Monroe said. “We have such rich talent here and we are so excited to make this opportunity available for our regional artist community.”

Artists interested in setting up as a vendor should contact Monroe at [email protected] or call 910-775-4442.
