• Our 10 Favorite Vendors from the HDSID Holiday Market in Jersey City

    There’s no doubt that the month of December is filled with shopping — but our Christmas shopping might not always be done locally. If you need a little nudge to support local businesses, the Historic Special Improvement Disctrict {HDSID} is making it easy with their Holiday Market happening throughout the month in Jersey City.

    There will be 10-20 vendors rotated throughout each event, so each date will be different than the previous. Located at the Grove Street PATH Plaza in Jersey City, the Holiday Market is easily accessible whether you’re coming from Hoboken, NYC, or other parts of Jersey City. Shop art, jewelry, home accessories, clothing, and more at budget-friendly prices {all while supporting local businesses}. To get you prepped and excited, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite vendors that will be at the markets.
