The HDSID Holiday Market in Jersey City is Back from 11/18-12/23

Written by:

It’s the time of year to eat, drink, be merry, and shop. With all of your favorite brands + businesses showcasing their very best of the season, it’s impossible to avoid a little extra spending. But at least when you shop at local businesses, you know your money is supporting your community and the businesses that make it special. The Historic Special Improvement District {HDSID} is making local shopping easy with their Happy Holiday Market, happening throughout November and December in Jersey City — right where the farmer’s market happens by the Grove Street PATH plaza.

Held on Mondays and Thursdays {plus the last weekend before Christmas, just in case you still have some shopping left in you!} throughout November and December, you can shop anywhere from 10-20 vendors rotated throughout each event, making each Holiday Market date a little different than the previous one. 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. Vendors will be selling art, jewelry, home accessories, clothing, and more at budget-friendly prices. Keep reading to check out 10 of our favorite vendors that will be making an appearance at the markets this year.
