Written by:

Our annual Hoboken Holiday Market is back this year on Tuesday, December 17th and we are so-ho-ho-ho excited about the amazing local vendors who will be on-site to make sure you find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. From handcrafted ornaments to sweet treats, you’re guaranteed to score unique finds that will seriously up your gift-giving game. Plus, shopping will be even more fun while you enjoy a glass of sparkling wine from Chandon surrounded by the most beautiful and festive holiday decorations set up at Birch. Read on to learn more about the Hoboken Holiday Market happening on Tuesday, December 17th.

About the Market

A portion of the proceeds from this event will once again support the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps. This incredible organization is completely fueled by volunteers who provide emergency response services to our community at no cost to those they serve.

This year’s event is back at Birch, which is sure to get you in the holiday spirit since they knock it out of the park when it comes to holiday decor. You’ll check-in and then start shopping on all three floors of Birch by visiting our food vendors and do more shopping from local artisans, designers, and boutiques. After you’re done shopping, you can head back to the first floor where the Hoboken Public Libary will be on-site offering complimentary gift wrapping when you sign up for a library card. Then, head to the bar at Birch with friends to indulge in holiday fun and drinks.  Chandon is the drink sponsor for the event and will treat attendees to a delicious glass of bubbly {for pre-purchased tickets only}. We are currently sold out of tickets online, but tickets will be available for purchase at the door. Tickets purchased at the door, however, will not include a complimentary glass of Chandon, but will include a donation to the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
