New location! Art Alley, 320 N Columbia St. 

between St. Tammany Art Association and H.J. Smith & Sons General Store

St. Tammany Art Association, in partnership with the City of Covington, presents the Covington Art Market, a juried market of visual arts and crafts held six times per year on first Saturdays within the Spring and Fall seasons, March, April, May, October and November, and on the first Sunday of December, noon to 5 pm, in conjunction with St. Tammany’s Holiday Festival of Arts, a Shop Local Artists Week event.

The Saturday markets are held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The market is now hosted in its new location, Art Alley, the community gathering space between St. Tammany Art Association’s Art House and H.J. Smith & Sons General Store, 320 N. Columbia St. in downtown Covington. The event features a variety of work from local and regional artists, including jewelry, photography, paintings, woodworking, fiber art and more.

The purpose of the market is to provide exposure and a venue for our members to showcase and sell their work. While you’re here, we encourage you to visit other downtown locations, including exhibitions at the Art House, the nostalgic array of goods and the historic museum at H.J. Smith & Sons General Store and the Saturday Farmers Market, which takes place from 8 a.m. to noon at 609 N. Columbia Street, just a few blocks away. Then enjoy a bite at one of downtown Covington’s many restaurants. It’s a great way to spend your Saturday!
