A pop-up market featuring dozens of local artists will open up at the Clarkwood Center starting Friday, Dec. 1, and will kick off with a fundraiser for local schools.
The holiday-themed market, called ArtPop, will be located at 1939 West El Camino Real in Mountain View, within the strip mall on El Camino Real between Clark and El Monte avenues. The market gives more than 25 artists a chance to sell their handmade work through Dec. 17.
The market is intended to encourage residents to shop locally and give local artists a retail presence during the holiday season, according to event organizers.
Opening weekend will include a ribbon-cutting event at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2, and 15 percent of the sales during the event will go to the Mountain View Education Foundation, the Los Altos Education Foundation and the Mountain View-Los Altos High School District Foundation.
