pop-up raleigh -sat,june 18
Pop-Up Raleigh is downtown Raleigh’s original monthly vintage market. A new name, formerly Pop-Up Sunday, new dates, and a new location are all part of our expansion in 2016. Moving to Trophy Brewing & Taproom on Maywood Avenue, near the NC State Farmer’s Market, allows us to offer additional indoor and outdoor spaces to vendors. Our fabulous hosting partner, Trophy, will curate a wonderful parade of food trucks, complimented by their tasty signature beers.
This new location allows us to grow Pop-Up to be the very best vintage market it can be.
