ROANOKE (WSLS10) - One organization in the Roanoke Valley is working to get people to venture downtown Roanoke on the weekends. It's part of the Pop Up Art Market at the Roanoke City Market Building.

Organizers said on the second and fourth Sunday of the month, different artists will display their pieces. They said about 50 artists are participating in the event.

"We're trying to develop an art community to give the artists more exposure and to also get people downtown and realize there are things going on downtown on Sundays," Jessica Minnix, the Art Market Coordinator said.

Organizers said they plan to add another day, Saturday, during December.
