Wallets at the ready – It’s that time of year again!

We love a good vendor market during the holiday season, or really any time of year, but especially when we have lots of items to cross off a list. Reason numero uno being that it’s such a great way to access a huge variety of local products under one roof. At any of these events you’ll have the chance to shop for men, women, children, multiple price points, beautifully handmade goods, and more.

Western New York will be pulling out all the stops in the holiday market category over the next several weeks, so get your shoppin’ shoes ready fam. At the top of our list is our own holiday shopping market, Fall Makers + Shakers: Boozy Artisan Market, for TWO days again this year on Black Friday, November 26 and Small Business Saturday, November 27 at a brand new, historical and visually stunning venue – The Powerhouse at Buffalo Color Park. We’ll have over 120 vendors, boozy samples, a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar, mimosas and other beverages, music, giveaways, and more!

Plus, there are plenty more opportunities to get out there and enjoy a holiday market – big and small. Hit one up and don’t miss an opportunity to kill it at the gift giving game this year!

Did we miss one? Did one of these events get cancelled? Send us a note!
