Featuring 20 local artists, Pineapple Triangle’s “AZ Wear That You Care” shopping event will play host to a variety of hand-crafted jewelry and clothing for all ages this weekend.

This Saturday, June 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Arizona vendors will sell their goods in Downtown Phoenix at Legend Studios City.

In addition to supporting local businesses, a portion of the items sold at this shopping event will go towards a charity of the vendor’s choice.

Pineapple Triangle founder and Ahwatukee Foothills resident Magdelyn McGrath began her company with the goal of helping local artists, and plans to host more markets in the future.

“Creating an event like this has always been a dream of mine. With ‘AZ Wear That You Care,’ we can impact the community in a fun and positive way while supporting local artists. Making a difference doesn’t have to be something big, it can be something small that is done in a big way.”

Event admission is $5, which gives access to the local vendors, live music and the Roasted Shallot Food Truck. The venue, Legend Studios City, is located at 521 W. Van Buren St. and is accessible from the Van Buren Street and Central Avenue light rail station.
