MRKT Space was created to foster community, so it’s no surprise that this is the new hot spot for holiday parties—both big and small. For an intimate event, rent out the experience table and enjoy time with friends and family amidst delicious snacks and cocktails. This table is designed to feel as if you’re eating at home with your loved ones—without the notorious party-planning stress. If you’re looking to host a larger crowd, MRKT Space offers full-space rentals for a holiday party guests are sure to remember. 



Boards, Bites & Bubbles

Whether you’re hosting at home or in the shop, MRKT Space’s cafe items are made for celebrations. Snack on cheese and charcuterie alongside seasonal fresh and dried fruit, jams, mustards, olives and toasted nuts in the store–or order a board with all of the above to impress your guests at home. And with MRKT Space’s Weekly Wine Fixe, no one will go thirsty. Pop by the shop for a curated, rotating selection of four bottles for just $75. If you opt to imbibe at the store, MRKT Space waives corkage fees on Wednesdays. Who doesn’t love a holiday-themed Wine Down Wednesday?


Sip & Shop

Holiday gifting is fun. Holiday gifting with a craft cocktail in hand is better. Sip on a refreshing Aperol Spritz or a striking lavender-infused Drifter while perusing MRKT Space’s stocked shelves. The elevated convenience store has a gift for everyone on your list, ranging from high-quality candles and natural skincare to stylish baby toys and gorgeous floral arrangements. We’d be remiss to mention the cookware too–snag a cookbook or hand-carved wooden utensil into your bag for a special treat for the foodie in your life. We won’t tell if you end your shopping trip with an espresso martini!


Hang Up Your Apron

Holiday parties can be stressful, especially when you’re in charge of the menu. Skip the hours spent in front of the stove with MRKT Space’s crave-worthy catering menu. Kick off your evening with a classic chef-selected charcuterie board or opt for MRKT Space’s thoughtfully selected Bites and Nibbles package, packed with housemade olive tapenade, hummus, toasted mixed nuts, cucumbers, crostini and crackers. But be sure to save room for mushroom, Margherita and chicken pesto flatbreads and antipasto salads. MRKT Space even has dessert covered with Italian-inspired tiramisu and mini cannoli Siciliani options as well as classic brownie truffles.
