Gothic - Occult - Subversive - Surreal - Odd
Market for the Strange was created to make space for the growing alternative art scene around Salem, Oregon. A place where the unusual is welcome, where the odd ones fit in, and where visitors can walk away with a little bit of the unexpected.
We host a monthly pop-up art market in western Oregon. We alternate event locations between Salem and surrounding cities.
Our Footprint So Far:
Salem - Eugene - Springfield - Albany - Brownsville
