Not planning on doing anything this Sunday? Why not head to Hoboken for an outdoor holiday market?
HOBOKEN, NJ – All roads lead to Hoboken this Sunday as the Hoboken Business Alliance hosts an outdoor holiday market featuring more than 125 artisan vendors from across the region as well as nearly two dozen local Hoboken businesses who will display their products in “retail row.”
The HBA worked with Main Street Pops to curate a varied collection of entrepreneurs and artisans offering unique gifts including clothing, accessories, jewelry, and bath and body products.
The market will be open from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on December 18 and be held under the 14th Street viaduct. Visitors can check everyone off their holiday list with a variety of pet products, home decor, children’s items, and art available.
Trying to fill a foodie’s stocking? Don’t miss the many artisanal foods and sweet treats some of the talented vendors will be offering.
A variety of family friendly activities will also be on offer, including a carousel ride, ice carving demonstration, and holiday dance party powered by the beats of DJ Tim Dawg Nelson.
Extending beyond the viaduct, those who attend the Holiday Market will also have the chance to enjoy a hot mulled wine tasting At Wine Dads, 1330 Willow Ave and Hot Chocolate & Rainbow Marshmallows at Hudson Table, 1403 Clinton Street.
Families can also visit Hudson Table to make their own gingerbread house or have their dog’s photo taken with The Grinch at Camp Bow Wow, 1414 Grand Street.
The holiday market isn’t the only reason to visit Hoboken on Sunday, Roxanne Earley, Executive Director of the HBA said, adding that Santa Claus will also be traveling through Hoboken on a float from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
“Cookie decorating, fresh S’mores, and even a chance to meet one of the stars of Survivor, on top of some great shopping, music, and more will pack your day in the Mile Square City,” Earley told TAPinto Hoboken. “But that’s only a fraction of what we have to offer.”
Earley went on to encourage families to take advantage of easy access to Hoboken via New Jersey Transit, as well as great parking incentives, by visiting other local businesses across the city.
“Anyone’s first stop should be to pick up one of our Holiday Shopping passports, a guide to the very best retail and dining Hoboken has to offer.”
