South End Small Business Saturday is back! On November 26, come spend the day shopping, dining and exploring the great local businesses you can find in South End. Unique apparel, art, gifts, local food and craft beer. 

200+ local businesses, 3 one-day-only pop-up markets, 70 places to eat and drink. Free trolley rides throughout the district. 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday, November 26.

Here’s How to #ShopSmall in South End on November 26:

1. 10am. COFFEE. 
You can’t start the day without fuel. Stop by Not Just Coffee at Atherton Market, the new Central Coffee on Camden Road, All Nations Coffee on Worthington Ave, Hex Coffee at Good Bottle, or the Gallery at South End for a great cup of joe. 
Want a little more sparkle in your cup? Try a mimosa at Happenstance at Atherton Market or Tupelo Honey, or a fresh juice from Luna’s Living Kitchen. 

2. YOU’LL NEED A BAG. Free #ShopSmall Canvas Shopping Bags designed by Rifle Paper Co., will available in stores throughout South End, and for the first shoppers at the Small Business Saturday pop-up markets (supplies limited). Check our map at, pick a shop or an art gallery that strikes your fancy, and stop by to see what’s in store.
