About The Event

Trash is just a failure of imagination!  Join us and be dazzled by reimagined debris at the Trashy Holiday Market!  Featuring ingenious local artisans who work their magic to turn almost-trash into one-of-a-kind wonders. Plus, enjoy other waste-less activities and crafts.

Brought to you by Nowhere Collective, Ignite Glass Studios, and Patagonia x Worn Wear.

There is no better way to show love for our one-and-only planet and each other than to gather together as a community. We have *nowhere* else to go, so let’s go *nowhere* together.

Shop from eco- & socially-conscious local businesses offering an array of of uniquely upcycled, hand-crafted wares, like home goods, planters, art, fashion, bath & body and more. Plus, more hands-on, trashy activities for all ages.

This is a free, all-ages event hosted at three amazing locations in Fulton Market/West Town:

Ignite Glass Studios at 401 N. Armour Street

Patagonia x Worn Wear at 1115 W Fulton Market

District Brew Yards at 417 N Ashland Ave

Our lineup of Trash Smashers is coming soon!

Plus, we want festive humans to shop conscientiously all season long, so we've curated the #OptUPside Gift Guide with even more alternative, anti-consumption giving ideas. Stay tuned for more.

At Nowhere Collective's Trashy Markets, there is zero tolerance for toxic behavior, including but not limited to harassment, discriminatory language, sexism, racism, or hate speech. Be respectful, curious, kind, and supportive humans.
