Our district is being recognized more and more every day for its niche shopping and arts. Get in on the ground level and be a part of our 3rd annual Holiday Market!
We’re looking to showcase 35+ artists, creatives & small businesses from all over the East Coast, and give them a space to sell their goods. We’re looking for unique artisan goods, up-cycled items, hand-crafted jewelry, trendy trinkets, artwork, clothing, home decor, small batch food and much more. We will be accepting vendors with all price-points, but we have found that lower priced items in the range of $25 and under do best!
