The Fad Holiday Market in Boreum Hill is back a year after it was canceled because of COVID-19.
On Sunday, shoppers and business owners alike were glad to have the tradition continue.
There was a line out the door to get inside the market at the Invisible Dog on Bergen Street which features local, small businesses with everything on sale from jewelry to rugs.
Businesses said the market is a great way to get their brand out to potential shoppers.
"We had a lot of traffic yesterday and we had a lot of people who didn't know we existed, so it is a good thing we are here, and we are Brooklyn-based. So it's even great to know people around the area," said Kashish Chopra, of Rug Rads.
The holiday market has another location at St. Paul's Church on Court Street in Cobble Hill. Combined, there are more than 100 vendors.
To have the market back after the pandemic cancelation is giving the shops a big boost in business.
"It's been incredible. I mean everyone is really out in force, supporting small businesses, especially this independent craft maker movement as well," said director of Fad Market Jen Bailey.
For the past five years, the market has helped shoppers find the perfect gift for the holidays.
The Fad Holiday Market will continue next Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
