Each week we are delighted to present local talent on our market stage. Musicians typically play from 10am to 1 pm, sometimes longer. See our calendar to see who is playing each week. Our Bio page has information on many of our returning artists.

Interested in playing at market? Contact us early in the year (Jan-Feb) for the best availability.

Thanks to the Anacortes Arts Festival and their generous Giving Back grant, we are able to better support our local talent!


dancing buskersWe welcome buskers! Musicians and other performers are welcome to entertain at market for tips provided you follow a few simple guidelines.

  • Check in at the Information booth. We’ll show you the best places to set up so that your music doesn’t overlap or compete with the musicians on stage.
  • Keep it clean! This is a family gathering place.
  • Do not block aisles or corridors. Free flow of foot traffic is essential to the success of our market.
  • We discourage brass instruments. It is very difficult to control the volume and it can be a little much in a close quarters environment.
  • You may offer recordings of your music for sale but sale of any other merchandise is prohibited. It’s just not fair to our paying vendors.
  • Have fun!
