What is Market 301??
Market 301 is a monthly market, hosted by me (Love Lexington) with around 30 local Lexington and Kentucky vendors, makers, artisans, and boutiques. Market 301 stemmed from an idea that a few vendors and I had just earlier this year…an idea to create a space where local makers, artisans, and online boutiques could set-up for a night of shopping (many that do not have store fronts and/or do mostly wholesale).
I loved attending the NoLi Night Market (and still do…check it out if you haven’t) but as it became more popular it has become harder to shop the vendors that are set up there. My vision was to create a market solely around shopping vendors like that. I am so excited to see how much it has grown from our first 10 vendor event at 301 East Vine Street (note where 301 came from) to now 30+ vendors at Manchester Music Hall. You all packed the house this past weekend and seem to be as passionate about this event as I am. I look forward to seeing what the next 6-12 months bring and how it evolves and grows!
Be sure to come join us on Friday, December 11th 6-10 PM and Saturday, December 12th 10 AM-2 PM at Manchester Music Hall for our next Holiday Edition of Market 301. We will be hosting a raffle to give away a big bag full of goodies from the Market vendors (all proceeds will go to a local charity…TBD at this time…more details to come on Instagram), gift wrapping by donation (proceeds also to go to the local charity), and word on the street is Blue Originals is besties with Santa and he will be making an appearance.
