“First we meet, then we market,” is the motto of the Meet Market which returns for its annual Christmas extravaganza. This year, they are breaking new ground with over 200 brands that are #madeinGreece, 50 of which are participating for the first time. In other words, there’s no excuse not to go at least twice during the 10 days of festivities that involve shopping, music, mingling, drinking, eating, and free activities. And why twice, you may ask? Well, for one thing, there are two completely different line-ups of vendors, one from the 8th-10th and the other from the 11th-17th of December. For another, there is no entrance fee so why not?
But, there is more to expect than just a yuletide shopping spree. Street food from various corners of the world, Glühwein (a free glass of mulled wine awaits you at the door on weekdays), artisanal coffee, locally brewed beers, non-stop DJ sets and a grand prize raffle are all in Meet Market’s sack. Kids will go nuts over the wonderful activities planned out by the organisers; workshops in woodworking, children’s theatre, face painting, magic shows and acrobatic adventures await.
While in Keramikos, make sure to pass by The Christmas Factory in Technopolis and you’re set for a full day of family fun.
