About Saguaro Market

About the market

Saguaro Market started in Tucson, AZ in 2016 as a 4-day, once a month gift market featuring hand-made goods from local makers, small batch greeting cards, and all things cactus. Due to a move across the country, the market has closed but the vision of building the creative economy remains the same.

Today, Saguaro Market features the musings of a cactus-obsessed, independent-maker promoting, creative-economy building, innovative-behavior unleashing gal, on a journey to discovering authenticity. We hope to re-open the market in the not-so-distant future near our new home in Madison, WI. Until then we’re committed to our original vision of building the creative economy by promoting small-batch independent makers, especially those that love cactus and the Sonoran desert as much as us, because while you can take the girl out of the desert, you can’t the desert out of the girl. 

When the market was open, we specialized in original artwork from local artists & offered high-quality gift wrap, paper goods, and a unique selection of gifts and home accessories. All of the items we carried at Saguaro Market had a distinct and modern nod to the southwest and were as unique and special as the friends and family receiving them. We were proud to be from Tucson, Arizona and you could see our pride represented in the modern, eclectic, southwest flair of everything we sold and did.

About the vision

Though the market has closed, our vision remains the same, to build the creative economy by living our core values:

  1. The Golden Rule
  2. The Law of Attraction

We firmly believe that you get what you put out into the world and that you treat people the way you want to be treated. This is what defines success for us. We will build the creative economy in a way that creates success for our customers, our partners, our community, and ourselves.
