There is 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 will officially open on Saturday.
Dozens of vendors will be selling goods and there will be an area where families can take pictures with Santa Claus.
Organizers hope to bring more business to the Fulton Street Business Corridor this Christmas season.
The marketplace runs every weekend until Christmas.
