GROWop Phoenix

Large arrow left

I stumbled across GROWop while taking a little stroll down Roosevelt Row in downtown Phoenix. It's a clothes shop meets home decor store meets vintage finds meets local vegetable garden.

GROWop (the name stands for 'growing opportunity') supports a creative community of artists and local entrepreneurs in Downtown Phoenix. They are designed as an incubator for these individuals to develop and grow their small businesses.

Their specialty is providing a keen eye for unique vintage finds and local artisan-made goods. They have added a lot to the downtown scene. On Sunday mornings you can volunteer in their vegetable garden and once a month they show movies in their courtyard.
