We will be supporting New Mexico Legal Aid with a raffle fundraiser at our GRAND OPENING this friday I hope you all can make it! All raffle items have been donated by our wonderful neighbors in the Upper Nob Hill community!

-Hi, I'd like to take a moment and thank everybody who has supported us and helped us move from being a group of broke artists with a vagabond artshow to a group of broke artists with a venue!-

Yes, Josh Jones, Alistar McCray, Mia Jumbo, and Evan Moore have pulled together to provide a space for art, expression, music, theatre, and belligerent expressions of highly-adultered love!

"I wanted to provide an alternative art venue to New Mexico artists while finally giving my nomadic art show a permanent home," said Josh Jones, Black Market Goods founder. "Here we can put down some roots and provide a solid place for people to find us."

You can catch us on Route 766, Rapid Ride Stop at Carlisle & Central or Route 66 stop at Carlise & Central, once you exit the bus head 4blocks east to Morningside then go half a block North of Central to 112 Morningside, NE
