The market also features a live drum circle and flute music, and experts on collecting will talk about art and artifacts from the museum's permanent collection.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in The Canyon of the museum, in the Rio Tinto Center, at 301 Wakara Way, on the University of Utah campus. Admission to the market is free.
