The Northampton Arts Council invites you to the fourth annual RETROFAIRE Open-Air Market on Saturday, September 9.

RETROFAIRE features a bounty of vintage fashion, unique reclaimed and re-purposed jewelry & design, as well as hard-to find music gear and vinyl records. Come check out collections from local and regional vendors selling the finest vintage fashions, the freshest records and unique reclaimed & re-purposed designs.

Why not spend the day supporting art, buying art and wearing art, all while listening to djays play great records and enjoying the savory smell of fine foods wafting in the background.

Come to RETROFAIRE Open-Air Market and enjoy the search for hidden treasures.

All proceeds benefit the Northampton Arts Council’s BJ Goodwin Grant. A grant designed to provide direct assistance to a Northampton-based artist, writer or arts organization in recognition of exceptional work and to support the further development of artistic talents.
