After turkey, seasonal attention turns to thoughts of shopping. While this search for a token of good will can bring thoughts of crowds and worries about packages getting delivered on time, there’s a way to navigate the rush that’s a bit more down-to-earth.

Over the next month, the city has plenty of markets offering up goods, whether it’s a pop-up or craft fair. The approach has the benefit of ensuring you’ll get a one-of-a-kind find, and support locals in the meantime.

With their eye for opportunity, Baltimore makers are among those getting their goods out. Here’s a look at three events slated for this weekend where you’ll find them:

Shop Black at Open Works

While Small Business Saturday looks to nestle itself between the big rush days, Open Works is diving right into the scrum with a pop-up shop on Black Friday. The Nov. 24 event looks to support Black entrepreneurs at the Station North makerspace. It runs 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Made in Baltimore Holiday Store

The pop-up shop with Baltimore goods is heading to Station North. The Made in Baltimore Holiday Store is set to open Nov. 25 in the former bank building at the corner of North Ave. and Charles St. It will have more than 60 businesses represented. The shop is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, then goes everyday the week before Christmas. And when perusing other shops, Made in Baltimore is now an official label that’s found on wares around the city.

Bazaart

In South Baltimore, the American Visionary Art Museum is hosting a massive marketing of creations. Running Nov. 24 and 25, Bazaart features work of more than 40 artists from the region. Admissions is free. Along with paintings and sculpture, it’ll have metalwork, jewelry and textiles. We hold out hope that some offerings are also kinetic.
