Tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 12, Ponyride will be transforming their Corktown warehouse and maker space into a giant holiday pop-up market. Head over to the Holiday Merriment and Maker’s Market anytime from 5-10 p.m. to shop more than 60 of Detroit’s hottest popups and maker-preneur boutiques.
If you’ve never been to Ponyride before, you really need to check this place out. It’s a 30,000 square foot, multi-level space and Friday’s market is going to be a huge indoor-outdoor shopping extravaganza. Food, drinks and entertainment throughout the building, and there will be food trucks stationed outside.
If you’re curious about some of the popups we’ve highlighted on Core Detroit like Sister Pie, Chez Chloe, Stockyard, Delectabowl, or Friends Potato Chips – this is your chance to see them all in one night. We’re hoping to snag a box of Sister Pie’s holiday shortbread trio – we’ve heard the juniper olive shortbread is pretty awesome (actually make that two boxes, one of them definitely won’t make it home).
Although there will be plenty of delectable food and food-related gifts at the market, it’s not all about eating. The market will showcase art, jewelry, body care, ceramics, candles, glass, wood, fibers, textiles and other goods. You’ll be able to check off every last gift still looming on your holiday list.
The Smith Shop hand-crafts absolutely stunning kitchenware and architectural metalwork. If you have a cooking enthusiast on your holiday gift list, they’ll go crazy for a hand-forged steel spatula. A set of hand-stitched and hand-dyed cocktail napkins from Folk & Faro are great for anyone who loves to host dinner parties.
You can find one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for fashion-forward ladies at shops like Rebel Nell, The Detroit Cuff, and Glass Action. We’ll be perusing the selection of beautifully stitched jeans and tote bags from Detroit Denim, or the handcrafted tweed infinity scarves from Two Sticks Five Stones.
There will be a free shuttle provided by Nemo’s Bar & Grill on Michigan Ave. over to Ponyride’s headquarters on Vermont St. Nemo’s has tons of free parking, and shuttles will go back and forth throughout the evening.
