Holiday CR[EAT]OR Market | Nov 18 - Dec 17

Thirty pop-up artisans will offer specialty goods and gifts alongside permanent BPM vendors

BOSTON — The Boston Public Market will host its first ever Holiday CR[EAT]OR Market, inviting local artisans to pop up and sell their wares alongside the Market’s 36 year-round farmers, fishers, and food entrepreneurs. The CR[EAT]OR Market will run for five consecutive weekends starting November 18, making it easy for customers to do their grocery and gift shopping all in one place this holiday season.

In addition to hundreds of unique offerings available all week long at the Boston Public Market, every Saturday and Sunday customers can find up to eight pop-up artisans selling specialty foods, jewelry, artwork, and home goods. Vendors such as Seedsheets, Alex’s Ugly Sauce, and Top Shelf Cookies are returning to the Boston Public Market after successful pop-up stints in the past, while entrepreneurs like Egg A Go Go, Smackadoodles, and Apple A Day will make their BPM debuts in the upcoming weeks. Keeping with the Boston Public Market’s steadfast commitment to local sourcing, all CR[EAT]OR Market products are either grown or produced in New England. Products range from locally grown Asian Pears and fresh Cape Cod cranberries to screen printed tea towels and all-natural booze infusers.

“The CR[EAT]OR Market allows us to hone in on our holiday offerings and support a diverse array of local artists and entrepreneurs,” said Cheryl Cronin, CEO of the Boston Public Market. “With items like roll-out gardens, veggie-inspired jewelry, and farm-direct skincare products on top of the high-quality agricultural goods our permanent vendors offer every day, the Boston Public Market truly is your neighborhood one-stop shop for holiday groceries and gifts.”

The Holiday CR[EAT]OR Market will follow normal Boston Public Market weekend operating hours: Saturdays 8am-8pm, Sundays 10am-8pm. Pop-up artisans will be spread throughout the Boston Public Market floor.
