POOL Opens Its Doors Friday

We've been telling you about POOL, a unique marketplace opening in Mesa.  Now it's time to check it out for yourself: 
There are 38 new reasons to head to Mesa this summer as POOL, the highly anticipated collaborative market, opens its doors Friday, July 30 at 10am with 38 merchants on-site and open for business.

POOL’s merchants include a full-service floral boutique, children’s clothing boutiques, a barber shop, a vintage and modern hat shop, an art gallery, an embroidery company, fine and costume jewelers, a music company, a home décor boutique, a children’s toy and book shop and a Mesa Police Department substation, to name a few. Food merchants range from a coffee and tea shop to authentic empanadas, tantalizing cupcakes and shaved ice.
The official grand opening for POOL is not until September, when a number of new vendors will be added.  Until then you will enjoy smaller crowds while you get an early taste of what POOL has to offer.
Some other things you might like to know:
A first of its kind in Arizona, POOL features specialty merchants selling a diverse mix of high-quality products, food and merchandise year-round, seven days a week.

POOL will also be a hub of activity, with entertainment and interactive events happening weekly. Spaces within POOL will be dedicated, and in certain instances donated, to local artists, musicians, comedians, dance and performing troupes and chefs hosting cooking classes.
I love the idea of local businesses coming together.  Sounds like the best of both worlds: supporting local business and the convenience of one-stop shopping.  One thing I am especially excited about is an "indoor/outdoor farmer’s market where fresh produce straight from local farms will be available."  Open every day.  I don't know yet if the farmer's market will be open on July 30th or if that will be some of what is added in later months.  I'll let you know.

Go check it out!
