The Meet Market at Athinais Cultural Center
The Meet Market |

Christmas is a special time of year for all of us, but its especially special for the Meet Market because its also our birthday.  So we have double the reason to celebrate so we are doubling the Meet Market! Thats right, this year we’ll be meeting and marketeering for not 2, but 4 days, from Thursday, December 19th till Sunday, December 22nd, in the spectacular venue of Athinais.  Its the first time we’re visiting this renovated silk factory, and we’ll be taking it over with 120 stalls of creations and innovations from local artists, designers, selectors, collectors and independent businesses.


And we’re making The Meet Market particularly entertaining for our little friends this December, because Christmas really is for them.  In fact, they get a whole space for themselves!  All day Saturday and Sunday, we’ll be hosting various interactive activities for kids in the music stage of Athinais.  Starting at 13:00 in the afternoon, there will be craft workshops by “Playroom” where our young friends can design their own Christmas ornaments & flags.  At 15:00, the team “Freon” will be performing their theatre production of “Eugenias Magical Journey” for all ages to enjoy.  Then at 17:00 the “Fire Fly” team will be engaging in interactive music and dance for the little musical souls… and last but certainly not least, Electra Negka will be telling us holiday stories at 19:00 in her magical way.

Expect to find plenty of gift ideas for those you love (no matter their style), hear loads of great music from our favorite djs (no matter your taste) and feel huge amounts of yuletide festivity and love (no matter your mood). So join us this holiday season to celebrate our 6th year anniversary at Athinais, and make sure you stop by the central tameio to win your complimentary Christmas gift!

The Meet Market: A 4 day celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit… A nomadic market place of local goods, fresh ideas and friendly folk. An audio-visual jigsaw of handmade & independently designed clothes, accessories, art, objects, organic body products, home ware, tasty food, vintage & retro collectibles, records, interactive games, free prizes, dj sets and good vibes.
