Τhe Meet Market | 10 Days Of Christmas
- by XpatAthens
The Meet Market – the most beloved mobile pop-up market in Athens – is back for 10 days in a row, this December 9 – 18 at the Old Depot Amaxostasio in Gazi.
It was back in 2007 when we opened our doors for the very first time at a little bar called K44 in Gazi, with 20 participating brands. Since then, 15 years have passed, and with many slow, steady and consistent steps, the Meet Market has grown, evolved, expanded and made many new friends and family members along the way. This December, we will feature more than 150 Greek brands of talented designers, artists, producers and collectors – divided into 2 lineups – turning the industrial roof of the Old Depot into a Christmas extravaganza!
So what can you expect? Our first line-up of creators and creations will take part from Friday December 9th till Sunday December 11th. Then we’ll switch it up with our second line-up of participants from Monday December 12th till Sunday December 18th. Come explore clothing, jewelry, accessories, care & wellness products, art & home deco, children’s items, delicious goodies, Christmas gifts and of course street food, Glühwein, artisanal coffee, locally brewed beers and plenty of alcohol to get the mood merry.
Faithfully following our motto “First we meet, then we market”, there’s not just shopping on the agenda. Beyond the stalls, you’ll find plenty to do and see – and for those of you who join us on the weekdays, there will be a cup of warm free Glühwein waiting for you.
Join us for non-stop dj sets with alternating DJs and plenty of free interactive games for kids including workshops in grafitti and cinema, facepainting and acrobatic adventures. And we haven’t forgotten about the big kids of course. Together with illustradays, we will feature “Drink & Draw” events hosted by special guests throughout the course of the 10 days. Make sure you stop by the central info point to take a chance at winning free prizes including our grand prize raffle, for 4 lucky winners who will each win a huge holiday basked filled with products from all our makers.
And DO LOOK UP, because you’ll find a very special exhibition of handmade dream catchers from Yannis Prassas “Dreamcatcher’s Project” that will fill the venue’s ceiling with color and wishes for the new year. Each Saturday, he’ll also be hosting workshops so you can come and learn to make them yourself. More details on our lineup of activites, exhibitors and djs below.
Come one, come all – just come on over and celebrate the holidays and our 15 year anniversary all together under one industrial roof in the heart of the city center.
The Meet Market: A pop-up celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit. Clothes, jewelry, accessories, body & self-care products, home-deco, art, goodies for kids, vintage & retro collectables, tasty street food & drinks, interactive games, free prizes, DJ sets and good vibes in a mobile market or local creators and creations.
