Jersey City Project: Market holiday event – December 8th

Great to see neighboring towns hold grand markets to promote local shopping in Hudson County. This Sunday, December 8th, The Jersey City Project is debuting their first event titled Project: MARKET, a curated tented outdoor market located in the heart of Historic Downtown JC. Sponsored in part by The City of Jersey City and Mayor Steve Fulop’s Office, the event will feature a “Shop Small – Shop Crawl” theme and serve as a kick-off to the local holiday shopping season. They’ve attracted some stellar vendors including food, drink and handmade goods providers and will be hosting DIY screen printing workshops all day while distributing local maps to encourage foot traffic to neighboring small businesses.

About The Jersey City Project

THE JERSEY CITY PROJECT is run by local residents and small business owners Elizabeth Cain and Kristen Scalia. Elizabeth owns Hound About Town and Hazel Baby, a pet and baby shop, and Kristen owns Kanibal Home, a lifestyle store. Just over a year ago their businesses and homes were severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy. They both saw firsthand how important having local support is in maintaining a thriving neighborhood when it was our community that made sure they were able to continue operating our businesses and, essentially, continue providing for themselves and their families. Fueled by a love for where they live and work, on the one year anniversary of the storm Elizabeth and Kristen decided to create The Jersey City Project in an effort to rebuild and encourage economic stimulation while leveraging independently-owned businesses.
