Allston-Brighton Winter Market

The Harvard Ed Portal has announced programming and vendors for the first-ever Allston-Brighton Winter Market, taking place December 7–10 in conjunction with the Harvard Ceramics Holiday Show and Sale and Allston Open Studios.

The four-day Winter Market will feature artisan vendors, live music, a food truck, a beer garden, and interactive programming. Of the 21 confirmed vendors, at least 14 Allston-Brighton residents will have goods available for purchase including jewelry, skin care products, clothing & accessories, paintings, prepared foods, photography, and prints. Hosted at 224 Western Ave in Allston, MA, the Winter Market will be a festive celebration of local creative entrepreneurship. All are welcome to stop by, and there is no admission fee.

On Saturday and Sunday from 12:00-7:00pm, the Winter Market will feature a beer garden with local favorite Lord Hobo Brewery, and will have food for purchase from Boston-based food truck Bon Me. Weekend highlights also include live music curated by Allston Pudding on Sunday, as well as Saturday performances by singer-songwriters Ali McGuirk, Dietrich Strause, and Harvard student Martine Thomas.

The Allston-Brighton Winter Market coincides with the Harvard Ceramics Holiday Show and Sale, a weekend exhibition and sale of work by Ceramics Program artists, taking place next to the Harvard Ed Portal at 224 Western Ave. and running on the same schedule; with the Allston Arts District 31st Annual Open Studios at 1 and 119 Braintree Street (Saturday and Sunday only); and with Barry’s Shop at Zone 3, which runs November 30 through December 23.
