About the La Paloma Artisan + Vintage Market 

More than just a series of markets, La Paloma is a community. Inspired by the gritty beauty of Tacoma, La Paloma (the pigeon), embodies the industrious, entrepreneurial spirit of our not-so-little city. It is our mission to not only provide quality shopping experiences for the community to enjoy, but to uplift, inspire, and promote the unique and hardworking artisans, crafters, junkers, pickers, collectors, curators, and creative small-business owners that call this area home.
