Mayday Space’s 5th Annual Social Justice Holiday Market:
Mayday Space’s 5th annual Social Justice Holiday Market returns to Bushwick as the premier destination to stock up on politically-conscious gifts for your loved ones. The weekend gathering will feature a broad, curated selection of high-quality items including upcycled clothes, handcrafted jewelry, posters celebrating protest movements, massage oils, house plants, herbal remedies, skincare products, and one-of-a-kind works of art. Highlights also include festive drinks, food vendors, kids activities, holiday portraits, card-writing to incarcerated people, and music to keep the vibes going.
Most vendors are people-of-color, immigrant, queer, women, low-income and/or longtime local residents. Some vendors are worker-run cooperatives and others are donating proceeds to causes ranging from immigrant and refugee defense work to reproductive and workers’ rights initiatives.
