Dallas 9/19/12 - On October 4, 2012, Deep Ellum Outdoor Market and Jim Lake Companies are teaming up to host the Design District Market, closing down Cole St. between Dragon and Slocum to make way for street vendors, live music, food trucks, activities and local beer. The event is free and open to the public, with food, beverages and merchandise available for purchase.
The Design District Market will be the ﬁrst installment of a potentially recurring neighborhood festivity.
The market will take place Thursday evening, from 5 to 10 p.m., and aims to give people unfamiliar with the area a glimpse of the rich culture distinctive to the district, while at the same time giving those already living and working in the area a reason to celebrate it.
Though more details will follow, food trucks at the event include The Butcher’s Son, Easy Slider Truck, The Belgian Wafﬂe Co., Rockstar Bakeshop and Cajun Tailgators, and beer will be supplied from Peticolas, Lakewood and Deep Ellum Brewing Companies. Local sponsors include Trinity Capital Bank and Yelp Dallas.
Vendors will feature local handmade artists and artisans as well as shops, designers and vintage dealers from around the Design District. We’ll also have a kids’ area, photo booth, and other activities that will be announced as the event approaches.
