Scenes From the Urban Air Market

Yesterday the heart of the neighborhood once again bustled with some of the most unique artists and vendors from around the Bay.

Sunday was a stark contrast, weather-wise, to the market’s last outing; fate opted for a gorgeous, warm day instead of forcing merchants to shield their goods from scattered bursts of rain.

We found lots of familiar faces, like the Dark Garden corsetry tent and Berkeley’s own Deconstruction Crafts.

The lovely Uni (above) and her ukulele serenaded the crowd with sweet covers of Van Halen, while new vendors like Twiss hair wraps got their first taste of the vibrant Hayes Valley crowd.

We saw plenty of gorgeous jewelers, clothing designers, and craftsman peppering Linden and Octavia streets, while recent H.V. staples like Casey’s Pizza and the Juice Shop served the masses.

We noted the only day’s damper being Urban Air’s first weekend without the wonderful BRIGHTER FASTER mural overseeing the festivities, which is now all but completely hidden by construction.
