MSA Annex: Cool Shops in Shipping Containers

IMG_2557

In the shadow of A Mountain and next to Caterpillar’s new digs lies a hip shopping destination that’s another true example of Tucson low-key cool: MSA Annex.

The annex is a cluster of shops and eateries housed in repurposed shipping containers, just down the street from Mercado San Agustin in what is shaping up to be a popular market district on Tucson’s west side.

Stores include novelty Tucson items (Why I Love Where I Live); minimalist women’s vintage (Luca Ryann); home accessories and global skin care brands (Now or Never); and a destination bar and bottle shop (Westbound) among several others.

MSA Annex has been hosting Summer Night Markets throughout the past few months and is gearing up for Mercado Flea next month, in which vendors will be selling vintage items, antiques and collectibles along the sidewalks and parking lots between the annex and Mercado San Agustin.

A definite desert destination as the temps drop!
