We hope you’re ready to shop ’til you drop!

Isles, in collaboration with a variety of small business owners, recently announced that they will be hosting a pop-up holiday market right here in Trenton. Located at 3 North Broad St., the market will feature a variety of local vendors, artists, live music, and more. The pop-up shop will be open for business on the following dates:

  • Sat., Nov. 19th: 10am to 4pm
  • Sun., Nov. 20th: 10am to 4pm
  • Sat., Nov. 26th (Small Business Saturday!): 10am to 4pm
  • Wed., Nov. 30th: 11am to 1pm

The market is nestled inside the Capital Center, with approximately 3,000 sq. ft. worth of holiday goodies for every person on your list. From artists to artisans, there’s certain to be something for every shopper. Besides a unique shopping experience, attendees can also enjoy live music, grab a bite to eat from a local vendor, and connect with a variety of community organizations from the region. A comprehensive list of the available vendors can be found here: Holiday Pop-Up – Details. With something in store for every guest, you’re sure to walk out beaming with holiday spirit!

If you’re a business owner looking to get involved, vendor applications are still available. If you’re interested in selling at the market, please fill out the initial interest form here: Pop-Up Interest Form. If approved, the vendor will be contacted and can choose the dates and times they’d like to participate depending on availability. There is a $25 per vendor fee, which is payable via credit card. Vendors are permitted to bring their tables, displays, chairs, etc. If you’re interested in selling and have additional questions, please contact Tuepeai Ortiz at 609-341-0321 or tupee78@yahoo.com.

This wonderful event would not be possible without the efforts of Isles, a Trenton-based community development non-profit. Per a 2009 survey, Trenton residents were more concerned about vacant and abandoned properties than about pollution, site contamination, lead paint, or any of the other listed issues. However, events like this transform a vacant space into a meaningful site of opportunity and growth for the Trenton community.
