Market on Market

Market on Market is a fun and exciting monthly artisanal flea market in Downtown Newark NJ. Modeled after other fantastic markets, Market on Market offers handmade, upcycled, recycled and antique items as well as workshops and musical events. Over 40 vendors attend the market, and although some come back for each market, there is always a good rotation of new vendors each month. New vendors and arts programming scheduled during the event means each market is a unique and exciting experience so don’t miss it!

Market on Market will be on hiatus for the summer but will return for a special holiday market on December 3rd, more info coming soon!
