Preview: SoWa Holiday Market

The market is this Saturday at Cathedral High School.

The will be held this Saturday, Dec. 10, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the gymnasium, 74 Union St.

Admission to the market is $5, but children under 12 may attend free of charge.

The market will host 80 designers and artists from the New England area this year, some of which have been presenting their products for several years. 

Becky Oh! from New Hampshire has shown at the market for the past seven years. Becky Oh!'s owner, Becky O'Neil, and other vendors said they always look forward to the opening of the market. 

"It’s the best show, people come from all over Boston and all over Massachusetts … I shop at the show,” O'Neil said.

Vendors at the market range from clothing to stationary, pottery to sweets.

The market is a seasonal specialty of SoWa and the community of vendors that develops around the show enjoy interacting with shoppers. 

“I always like to talk with our customers to see first hand the things that they are loving,” said Shelley Barandes, owner of Albertine Press.

Because Albertine Press, as well as other vendors, sell whole sale products during the year, the market is rewarding because they get to be with shoppers and see how they appreciate hand-labor crafts, Barandes said.
