Is it too early to start thinking about the holidays? Well, it’s never too early to start thinking about all the new happenings coming to the city!
Urbanspace, which runs the biggest New York City markets for the holidays, is expanding nationally and landing right here in Miami with their Lincoln Road Holiday Market. So mark your calendars for sweater weather and ’tis the season to shop because it will be open from November 15 through February 15.
Mirroring a similar layout to their usual Union Square and Columbus Circle locations, Miami’s outdoor marketplace hopes to feature 100 local and out-of-state vendors in the heart of South Florida’s premier al fresco shopping and dining destination, specifically at the intersection of Washington Avenue. They’ll be selling everything from traditional holiday decor to local products that would make for wonderfully unique gifts. We’re talking home goods, children’s toys and apparel, stationery, books and prints, men’s and women’s apparel and accessories, jewelry, kitchen and garden items and artisan food products.
And as you prance around the open-air market don’t forget about keeping your thirst and hunger in check! There will be plenty of food and beverages to be enjoyed on site.
“At a time when Miami is abuzz with growth and expansion, we could not be more thrilled to add to the excitement by creating the most unforgettable holiday experience through the new market on Lincoln Road,” says Eldon Scott, President of Urbanspace. “We aim to create spaces where entrepreneurship, community and creativity can flourish and are confident Miami is the ideal locale as our first foray into national expansion of our holiday markets.”
