By the very nature of its business, Southport Antique Mall (SAM) clearly supports and seeks to engage in responsible consumerism, encouraging people to reuse, repurpose, and rethink old items for new spaces and new creations. As a part of their 20th year anniversary, SAM wants to strengthen its dedication to the local community by offering new and exciting opportunities for conscientious spending that supports our local entrepreneurs, farmers, and artisans.
SAM's first step towards this goal is the continuation of the Southport Farmers’ Market, which was held in the west parking lot last autumn. SAM is excited to be hosting local farmers and vendors for an opportunity for our community members to enjoy fresh, local goods! So come and enjoy the Southport Farmers’ Market every Tuesday from 9am-1pm and Friday 3pm-7pm starting in May and running through October. If you or anyone you know may be interested in participating contact Nancy Miller at (317) 431-3267 or at firstname.lastname@example.org or on facebook https://www.facebook.com/SouthportFarmersMarket.
Another way Southport Antique Mall is reaching out to the local community and encouraging responsible consumerism is by hosting the Southside Vintage Marketplace. Local vintage dealers and artisans will be setting up in our open air marketplace every second Saturday of the month beginning in April and extending through October. Check out their facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/TheSouthsideVintageMarketplace
Through hosting these markets, SAM seeks to not only support local entrepreneurs, vendors, farmers, and artisans, but to encourage the community to do the same. So come out and support your community members by purchasing local this year!
