The Commercial City Center of Athens (aka Athens Trigono) is having a makeover, and the Meet Market is proudly part of it. Join us this Sunday, May 12th, 2019 from 11:00 – 19:00 in a unique STREET EDITION Meet Market, with over 50 stands of independently made and locally produced goods, in collaboration with six d.o.g.s. & with the support of the Revitalisation of the Athens Commerical Triangle Program and the City of Athens.
Our on-foot exploration & downtown celebration starts in one of our favorite OG venues – the one and only six d.o.g.s.! There, we will be setting up in our usual spaces, those being the Gig Space, Project Space, Bar & Foyer, and also spreading out onto the newly pedestrianized Avramiotou Street with plenty more stalls of a classic Meet Market variety. There will also be lots going on for young kids including family oriented product stall and Street Circus acts & interactive will be happening all day long, from 11:00 – 19:00.
The urban walk continues onto Karori Street, where it takes a vintage turn, featuring the COO Retro Design shop, and plenty more stalls with retro fashion and collectables, for all you vintage lovers out there.
Meanwhile, on the corner of Agiou Markou & Xrisospiliotissis, Athens Trigono will be hosting a street art event, where street artists will be doing live painting on various downtown shops, not to mention a b.m.x. bike show and a photography exhibition. Also, various local businesses and shops will be keeping their doors open throughout the day, welcoming the public to wonder in and get to know them and their initiatives better!
So market your calendars people! Sunday May 12th is the day to leave your cars behind and explore the commercial city center on foot, to celebrate how unique and colorful it truly is. Come take part in a day of shopping, djs, street art, workshops, bike performances, entertainment for kids and a whole lot more… and combine forces with us to show that a neighborhood can become an area where the pedestrian visitors, the local businesses and it’s inhabitants are the priority.
