Shop Small MA will host markets at Warehouse XI and La Brasa before teaming up with Courtney O’Keefe to co-host a final market in the main hall of the historic Armory.
Somerville, MA – Shop Small MA has teamed up with Tiny Turns Paperie and Courtney O’Keefe to present holiday markets spread across Somerville this season. Vendors will be setting up shop in Warehouse XI (11 Sanborn Court), La Brasa (124 Broadway) and the main hall of the historic Armory (191 Highland Avenue) with crafted goods perfect to conquer anyone’s shopping list. These events are free to the public (with a suggested $3 donation at the door for the Armory Market).
“Goods made from local artists adds a special touch that you can’t really get from big box, corporate items,” said Shop Small MA founder Vanessa Yip. “There’s an incredible community that is born from buying local. It spurs economic growth and keeps our amazing crafts people in business. It’s a win / win.”
The Union Square Holiday Market, presented by Tiny Turns Paperie and Shop Small MA, will be held at Warehouse XI on Friday December 13 from 4-10pm and Saturday December 14 from 10-6pm. The E-Som Market will be held on Tuesday December 17 from 5-10pm at La Brasa. The Wrap It Up! Winter Market at the Armory on Sunday December 22 from 11-5pm is your last call to shop small (you can also sip while you shop at the Armory, with the Armory bar offering a selection of wine, as well as beers from event sponsors Narragansett Beer and Notch Brewing.)
“Please remember to use cash when paying for goods at these markets. This helps our vendors avoid credit card fees and boosts profits,” added Armory market co-host Courtney O’Keefe. “These events are also surrounded by amazing locally owned, independent businesses and restaurants. Make it a point to frequent those with cash in hand not only before or after attending the market, but all year round!”
