About the Market
The Main Street Pops Artisan Market happens throughout the year here in Hoboken, taking place every Sunday of the season underneath the 14th Street viaduct in uptown Hoboken. Each month, a group of local artisans and makers will offer things like art, photography, jewelry, fashion, home and lifestyle accessories, artisanal food, pet products, and more.
Many of the vendors at the market rotate, but there are also a handful of regular “VIP Vendors” at every market. Past VIP Vendors have included Nackies Dog Treats, We Are Wonderfully Made Hot Pepper Sauce, Shapes Studio Jewelry, Indian Crafts by Runa Maki, soaps + candles by Burbujas D’Amor, and treats by Gr8 Escape Baking Co.
Local nonprofits also have booths at the market, for free, to support the community.
Special events are scheduled throughout the year, such as live music, flash mobs, themed seasonal photo opportunities, and craft projects for the kids.
