The Jersey City Project hosts its fourth annual holiday Project: MARKET this year on December 3rd & 4th, 2016 from 11am-6pm. The heated outdoor market features a variety of local vendors and is located next to City Hall (280 Grove Street to be exact) in the Historic Downtown section of Jersey City.
The kick-off event of Jersey City’s holiday shopping season highlights local businesses and food vendors, encouraging economic growth amongst small businesses. Eat, shop, drink, and be merry!
Here are the schedules for this season’s farmers markets in Jersey City. Besides stocking up on produce and specialty foods, you can eat lunch on the spot from various food trucks and drink stands. And you can shop specialty items, usually handcrafted soaps, oils and other bath & body luxuries. Live music, children’s activities and free yoga are also at certain markets occasionally (check their schedules).
Many markets also have stands with information about community programs in Jersey City and other initiatives happening in your micro community of this grand city. Meet your local vendors, your neighbors (and their pets!), and be involved with the greater picture of the development of Jersey City in 2016.
