The Market at Sawyer Yards is a fun, free event for the whole family that showcases up to 54 different local vendors. Each second Saturday of the month, the outdoor market is held at 1502 Sawyer St., Houston. Founder and Manager Mitch Cohen said he had been running the First Saturday Arts Market in the Heights when he was asked to put together some plans for a new market at Sawyer Yards. He said he based his proposal on the Eugene Saturday Market in Oregon, which he had visited a year earlier. So The Market at Sawyer Yards started in May 2016. Cohen said Sawyer Yards is a great location because the event coincides with the Second Saturdays at Sawyer Yards, where the surrounding art studios are open to the public.
