Artisanal food bazaar comes to burgeoning Jefferson-Chalmers.

The Detroit Holiday Food Bazaar was started in 2010 as a means to connect small food entrepreneurs with customers eager to purchase unique local and artisanal products, both for themselves and as holiday gifts. The Bazaar will showcase some of the best food artisans the area has to offer. This year’s market will feature products such as “Old Timey Drinking Vinegars” from McClary Bros., smoked salmon from Great Lakes Smoked Salmon, hand-dipped chocolate truffles from Pete’s Chocolates, olives and tapenades from Sofia’s Selection, French lava cakes from Chez Chloé, and much more. Many vendors will be offering special holiday pricing or gift packaging not available elsewhere.

This event is free and open to the public, and there is a free parking lot at the northwest corner of Jefferson & Chalmers. Friday, Dec. 13 (5 p.m.-10 p.m.) and Saturday Dec. 14 (11 a.m.-5 p.m.)
