The Meet Market – Athens Conservatoire
Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 May 2018
17-19 Leof. Vasileios Georgiou B’ & Rigillis, 106 74
13:00 – 23:00 each day

This May, the Meet Market returns to the fabulous venue of the Athens Conservatoire, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th, with 70+ Greek brands of spring essentials in the ‘Ω2’ exhibition hall.  Located 5 minute walk from Syntagma Square or Evangelismos, this super central venue is an architectural piece of art, a cultural landmark, and the perfect place for the Meet Market to kick off the spring-summer season.

Whether it’s a weekend stroll you’re after, a refreshing cocktail, a Greek Craft Beer, a coffee and a chat, a big scoop of ice cream, a spontaneous shop or a place to come meet up with friends or take your kids, join us because there is something for everyone including nonstop dj sets, plenty of creativity to admire and lots of free stuff to win at the central cashier.

A Weekend for Kids: Moms and dads, make sure you bring your little people because there’s lots going on for them too!  And there will be plenty of shade from the hot days ahead to keep your kids cool while keeping them busy.  For the first time this May, the Meet Market is doing a very special collaboration with the Hellenic Children’s Museum, located right next to the entrance of the Meet Market at the Athens Conservatoire.  All kids are welcome to come and play all weekend long at the Hellenic Children’s Museum, or head downstairs to enjoy a puppet theater show or stretch their little bodies with Yoga for Kids!

It’s official.  Spring has sprung.  See you there.
