The Meet Market @ Athens
A 2 day celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit… A nomadic market place of local goods, fresh ideas and friendly folk. An audio-visual jigsaw of handmade & independently designed clothes, accessories, art, objects, organic body products, home ware, tasty food, vintage & retro collectables, records, interactive games, free prizes, dj sets and good vibes.
How it all began
The Meet Market began as a tiny Christmas market, back in 2007, on the second floor of a bar in Gazi, which no longer exists – K44. K44 went on to become other things, and so did the Meet Market, starting with just 20 vendors of like-minded designers, crafters, collectors and makers. The idea was to explore a new type of market, something nomadic and fresh, with well-made products & concepts, and alternative promotion, in a fun, lively, musical setting, open to all.
And so it did just that, and began to grow, attracting more vendors and more visitors each time, establishing a monthly meeting point where creators and appreciators could get together and exchange, share their visions, test their ideas, sell their work, improve, evolve, and create yet another vessel for getting by in these challenging times.
