Neighborhood markets showcase the best in local art


Formerly known as Tacoma Flea Market, La Paloma Marketplace has rebranded and launched a three-location market series that reflects not only the character of each neighborhood location, but showcases the very best of the Tacoma arts community. Local vendors include handcrafted jewelers, weavers, painters, fashion designers, vintage dealers, and more.

La Paloma Marketplace: Proctor is open every Saturday from 9-2pm, and is located on North 27th Street. Nestled within a charming, historic neighborhood, La Paloma Proctor is family friendly, eclectic, and inviting. Spend the morning perusing a curated collection of handcrafted home goods, accessories, jewelry, children’s wear, and more from local artisans, crafters, and “mama” makers. Opening day for this market is June 2.

La Paloma Marketplace: Point Ruston is Tacoma’s premier weekly evening market. Twinkling lights, the sounds of the sea, summer breezes, and a canopy of stars… La Paloma’s signature Waterfront Night Market evokes the feel of a romantic European bazaar. Spend the evening listening to strolling musicians while shopping for the loveliest wares from local artisans. Located in the covered pavilion at Point Ruston, this market is from 5-9pm every Thursday evening. Opening day for La Paloma Point Ruston is June 14.

La Paloma Marketplace: Pearl Street is a monthly market with unique atmosphere. Casual and eclectic, this market is a patchwork of goods, exhibitors, and artists located just up the road from Point Defiance Park. Located at the future of home of Central Co-op on Pearl Street and North 45th, this market will be open the second Sunday of each month from 10-3pm. Opening day for La Paloma Pearl is June 10.
