The GIFTED Holiday Marketplace will be held Saturday, Dec. 15 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.Sunday, Dec. 16 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Santa Monica Pier.

The Santa Monica Pier will debut a unique two-day craft-style fair called “GIFTED: A holiday market for uncommon goods” this weekend.

The market comes at the perfect time to check that list twice and shop for one-of-a-kind items plus enjoy all of the other attractions and amenities the pier has to offer.

A DJ will play on Saturday evening and ambient music will fill the air during other market hours. The Pier’s Central Plaza location, located between Starline Tours and PierBurger, will be transformed into a market influenced by Asian night markets that meld three all-time favorites – food, shopping, and entertainment; including communal picnic table, DIY gift wrapping station and holiday lights.

The hours are Saturday, Dec. 15 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 16 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
