Grossmont Center is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and its impact on our region and community. Out of an abundance of caution, Grossmont Center has decided to RESCHEDULE ALL MARCH EVENTS. We regret any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding as we navigate this public health issue in the context of keeping our communities safe.
Grossmont Center has always been a terrific place to shop local, and now it is better than ever with the First Saturday Local Pop Up Market! This monthly event, co-presented by Grossmont Center and San Diego Made, offers unique items from more than 40 regional makers, craftspeople, and artisans all in one spot for easy shopping. Creativity is on full display at this free, family-friendly market, held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. the first Saturday of every month.
Support Local Artists with San Diego Made
Local pop up markets are just one of the ways San Diego Made shines a well-deserved spotlight on the creative community. The organization also sponsors workshops for participants who want to share their talents on a broader scale, with topics ranging from running a side business to envisioning a dream job. Most of the workshops take place in the San Diego Made Factory. This 12,000-square-foot warehouse is a hub of artistic innovation where makers can hone their craft in one of 28 studios, or use one of the offices or co-working spaces. The factory provides WiFi, podcasting rooms, a kitchen and dining area, plus a 1,000-square-foot event space ideal for photoshoots, client meetings, or private parties.
The factory also offers the priceless benefit of providing a place where like-minded visionaries can meet, network, and get inspired by each other. Membership amenities include coverage on San Diego Made’s social media channels, access to the factory, and the chance to sell products at local pop-up markets—including the First Saturday Local Pop Up Market at Grossmont Center!
Feel Inspired at Grossmont Center
The Center is proud to be the home of many independent local businesses, and the First Saturday Local Pop Up Market is another way to showcase San Diego’s inventive entrepreneurs. (And it is also a fantastic way for customers to find unique treasures that can’t be purchased anywhere else!) The market’s lively atmosphere makes it a great place to spend the day with friends or family; be sure to make time for lunch or dinner at one of Grossmont Center’s great restaurants! Come join us on the next first Saturday of the month, or at one of our other fun community events, and see why Grossmont Center is the place to be!
