It's the holiday season in Pittsburgh's Bakery Square, and it's worth the drive from the North Allegheny suburbs if you want to find a marketplace of locally-made goods and artwork.
I Made It! Market is hosting "I Made It! For the Holidays" today, Friday, from 5 to 10 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 1, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Last year, more than 7,000 shoppers visited the two-day event. This year, artists and makers will again provide a wide variety of locally made and hand-made good, including ceramics, housewares, jewelry, clothing, bath and body products, giftware, prints, letterpress, sweet treats, plush, children’s items and more.
Una Biologicals—owned by Brookline native Jessica Graves, who now lives in the North Hills—is an event sponsor and will have a booth at the holiday market.
Many other local artists will participate as well. To see a list of all participating artists, see the I Made It! Market website.
Friday’s festivities also include the lighting of Bakery Square’s building in red to acknowledge World AIDS Awareness Day by the Delta Foundation. On Saturday, a pop up beer garden will be hosted by Tapped and Santa will be on site to pose for pictures.
Bakery Square is located at 6425 Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh. See the Bakery Square website for more information.
I Made It! Market is the brainchild of Brookline crafter Carrie Nardini. .
