Time Out Market adds additional vendors and celebrates Opening Weekend from Thursday, June 17 to Sunday, June 20th

Back in October 2019 (which seems a lifetime ago) the highly anticipated opening of the Time Out Market in the Fulton Market District was a big event.

Little did we know it then that the world as we knew it was about to come to a screeching halt.

Now finally, after a painful 14 months, things are getting back to normal.

It’s time to celebrate.

And that’s exactly what Time Out Market has in store for this weekend.
