Oceanside, CA -We would love to have you participate in the Seventh Annual Merry Makers Fair. Returning to Downtown Oceanside on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 26, and Sunday, Nov. 27, 2022, this two-day holiday pop-up market is part of ’Tis the Season to Shop Local — a fun, distinctly local holiday celebration inviting the community to explore Oceanside retail establishments and to shop local this holiday season.
Operating this year in Downtown Lot 35 at Pier View Way and North Tremont Street, the location of last year’s event and the Sunset Market Main Stage, and in Artist Alley, the Merry Makers Fair offers an exciting opportunity to bring you face-to-face with new customers in a festive market setting.
