Selective Focus: Holiday Pop-ups

The Thanksgiving weekend blizzard wreaked havoc on Small Biz Saturday and some of the Pop-Ups in town, but we have tried to update this list with the rescheduled events.

These are the true “get ’em while you can” offerings, pop-up markets where a wide variety of art, food products, clothing products and more are on display. There are usually snacks, maybe some hot chocolate, and lots of other people milling about, so the atmosphere is a lot more fun that adding things to your online cart.

Some are small, some are huge. Each market has its own vibe, check the websites and event pages for special instructions on parking, hours etc.

Let us know what markets we’ve missed in the comments, or by sending an email.
