Bed-Stuy Gateway BID helps small businesses make up for lost wages

It’s no doubt that small businesses have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. Now, the Bed-Stuy Gateway Business Improvement District is helping small businesses make up for lost wages with its second annual marketplace event.   
On Monday, officials announced the return of the Winter Wonderland 2.0 marketplace, which officially opens on Saturday. 
Dozens of vendors will be selling goods and there will be an area for families to take pictures with Santa. 
Organizers say they’re hoping to drive more business to the Fulton Street Business Corridor this holiday season. 
The marketplace will run every weekend until Christmas.
