Wyld Market is coming to Reno Public Market! The market works under arts focused, small business community group Wandering Wyld and will feature a curated selection of works from local artists and small businesses who don’t have their own brick-and-mortar storefront. This will really help local artists get increased exposure at a major shopping center.
Wyld Market will be housed in a 3,000-square-foot retail space. Once opened, the space will house creations from over 60 local artists. Any of the over 350 makers in the Wyld Community will be able to access space in the market. If you're an artist interested in joining the Wyld community, check out their web site.
The creative venue and artistic epicenter is geared towards local artists, creators, and small business owners to grow and evolve their businesses.
“Before Reno Public Market, we had only ever done short-term lease agreements,” said Rachel Macintyre, CEO and founder of Wandering Wyld. “We realized in our last space that we needed a more permanent establishment to offer the best for our local artists. This space will allow us to combine the best aspects of our pop-up markets, our curated boutiques, and our short-term retail spaces.”
Wandering Wyld will also introduce their new “Day Table” experience at Wyld Market. Instead of artists utilizing market space for months at a time, makers will now be able test out a brick-and-mortar establishment by reserving a table for as little time as a day.
“We really believe in promoting the collective good,” said Nettie Oliverio, arts and culture director of Foothill Partners Inc. “When artists come together in a space, it’s much more affordable and viable to establish a permanent storefront.”
Wyld Market will be opening a holiday pop-up in Winter 2021 at Reno Public Market before officially moving in. The market is expected to officially open in Spring 2022.
This is just the beginning of infusing arts and culture at Reno Public Market. A large maker space is also expected to open, offering a space to create art, make things, and take art classes.
