Shop Local This Holiday Season at the NWA Holiday Makers Market!

The Holiday Market Returns to Loloft in Downtown Rogers on December 9, 2023

ROGERS, AR – November 29, 2023 – This holiday season, Northwest Arkansas is getting into the spirit with the NWA Holiday Makers Market. On December 9, Loloft’s flagship location in downtown Rogers will be transformed into a special one-day pop-up indoor market featuring small businesses from around the area. From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., visitors can shop for unique, handcrafted gifts and support local makers.

The NWA Holiday Makers Market is more than just a shopping event, it’s a celebration of the creative and entrepreneurial spirit in Northwest Arkansas. This year, dozens of local vendors will be showcasing their products, which range from jewelry and home decor to artisanal food items and original art paintings and prints.

In addition to shopping, visitors can also enjoy live music and food vendors. This event is family-friendly and suggested admission is a nonperishable food item that will be collected to benefit the NWA Food Bank.

“We are so excited to be hosting the second NWA Holiday Makers Market,” said Loloft’s co-founder, Paola Ibarra. “It’s a great way to support local businesses and entrepreneurs while getting into the holiday spirit.”

Another exciting element at this year’s NWA Holiday Makers Market is the theme of “Deck the Halls,” featuring a special selection of home decor products by local makers and designers, curated by Loloft ambassador, Nicole Boddington.

“Loloft is really the perfect blank canvas for creatives, especially interior designers. Our vision is to allow them to use the space as they wish, showcasing their products and expressing their design aesthetic, while creating a cozy, nostalgic holiday hangout,” she said.

The NWA Holiday Makers Market is made possible by Loloft and Startup Junkie, in partnership with the Roger Lowell Chamber. The market will be located at Loloft, 600 S 1st St, Rogers. More information can be found here.
