Support Local Businesses at the Montrose Live! Weekly Market

Springtime is almost here and that means more outdoor art markets, live music, and food truck festivals. In the meantime, there are weekly markets that can still provide opportunities for entertainment and the chance to support local, Houston businesses. 

Montrose Live! is a weekly market that hosts food vendors, makers, and more at 1001 Westheimer Rd. The market lasts from 12 pm to 6 pm each Saturday and has a come-and-go vibe. A low hum of background music played as the stage was being set for the upcoming night market and live music series, beginning March 22. The crowd was light as Houston experienced a windy forecast of 57 degrees, but that didn’t stop vendors from making sales. 

The sleepy market had a variety of food trucks that sold cuisines ranging from gourmet hot dogs to vegan comfort food. One booth held an outdoor thrifting experience with clothing racks and cowboy boots on display, in case shoppers needed some gear for the Houston Rodeo. Another corner of the market hosted an assortment of African artisan masks, handcrafted tote bags, jewelry, and vintage vinyl records. 

Houston ranked number 22 out of 100 metro areas in the US to begin a small business, based on a 2023 study by The Credit Review. To meet the small business owners driving these statistics, artisan markets and local festivals are the places to find them.

William Johnson, an attendee at Montrose Live!, said, “It’s a very diverse and inclusive market and I can’t wait to come back again.”

One handmade vendor booth that stood out marketed two brands, Sisterhood Aromatherapy and Beautiful Rebel Hair. They sold various wax melts for candle warmers and other sizes of candles with scents like “Sweet Dreams” with black amber and lavender, and “Sensual” with amber and sandalwood. Other household and self-care products on display included essential oils, room sprays, and false lashes.
