Anthem House Celebrates Small Business Saturday in Baltimore

Nov 18, 2021

With the middle of fall comes the impending excitement of the holidays, which of course, leads to everyone giving gifts. Here in Baltimore, there are so many small businesses to shop for gifts at on Small Business Saturday!

Celebrating Baltimore Small Businesses

Shopping at small businesses can be beneficial for all of us. Buying locally helps contribute to our community. With recent shipping costs and arrival time issues, shopping local can also guarantee that we receive all of our purchases in time.

On November 27th, you can celebrate Small Business Saturday by attending these events, which make it easy to shop at multiple small businesses at once:

Cross Street Holiday Market

Hosted at the Cross Street Market in Federal Hill, this event offers live music and a market-wide holiday menu to enjoy while shopping amongst local artisans. Beginning at noon and ending at 5 pm, you can spend your afternoon looking for unique holiday gifts.

Holiday Bazaar

From 11 am to 2 pm, head up to Belvedere Square for a bazaar experience with live music and local sellers, along with drinks and food.

Waverly Holiday Pop-up

In collaboration with Waverly’s main street and Baltimore's 32nd Street Farmers Market, come to Greenmount Avenue and enjoy shopping with local vendors, as well as those from the Farmers Market, from 8 am to 2 pm.

Night Owl

Though this event isn’t during night owl hours, you can still head on over to Night Owl Gallery in Highlandtown from 10 am to 5 pm to shop small. While you’re there, be sure to enjoy some holiday refreshments!

Shop ‘Till You Drop in December

Can’t make it to any Small Business Saturday events? If you’re out of town for Thanksgiving, there are still other shop small events to attend throughout the holiday season.

Christmas Village

Want to enjoy the Christmas spirit throughout the season? Come on over to the Inner Harbor from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve for the 8th annual Christmas Village. Enjoy dishes such as Bratwurst and Raclette, and pair them with some delicious mulled wine or hot cocoa. Be sure to take the opportunity to preview the village on November 20th and 21st!

Bits & Bobs

At Bits & Bobs in Cross Keys, you’ll find the perfect gifts from over 50 local businesses for all of your friends and family. Find it at 5100 Falls Rd on December 4th from 10 am to 2 pm.

Holiday Heap

Over 40 artists and sellers will be in Charles Village, at 2640 St Paul St., on December 4th. Brought to you by Charm City Craft Mafia, all of the vendors will be selling wonderous handmade goods from 10 am to 5 pm. Proof of a covid vaccination is required for all guests over the age of 16.

Spread the Joy this Holiday Season!

Want friends and family to also find fun in small businesses? Giving gift cards from these businesses can give them the opportunity to explore Baltimore businesses and spread the word! Luckily for Anthem House Residents, there are several small businesses on-site, so you won’t have to go far to shop small! Be sure to visit:

Happy Shopping

We hope each and every one of our Anthem House residents has the opportunity to shop small this holiday season. If you do attend any of these shop small events, be sure to tag us in your photos, @AnthemHouseApts.
