Shoppers, want to get the most of our Indie Holiday Emporium? Here's our Shoppers' FAQ for what you need to know
- How much does the show cost?
General admission is FREE to get in, both days! We will have paid VIP tickets available for early entry and swag for Sunday admission
- How many vendors will be there?
- Are the vendors local?
Yes! We take pride in curating the majority of our vendors from the Bay Area and closely surrounding areas. We have a few others from Northern and Southern California. You will be shopping small and shopping local!
- Are the products handmade?
Yes! We only accept handmade and locally-designed items into our show.
- Is there parking?
Pier 27 has a limited number of parking spaces onsite. These spaces fill up quickly, however there is plentiful parking in the area with lots of on-street, parking lots, and parking garages nearby. This is San Francisco, so be prepared that lots may be expensive.
We encourage you to ride-share to the event. There will be a dedicated Uber/Lyft drop-off area, as well as dedicated bike parking. City Share bikes are also available onsite.
The street cars also run frequently along Embarcadero right near Pier 35 (just up from Pier 27), so you may prefer to take public transportation or park a little further away and take the F Line.
- What time should I get there?
The show runs from 12p-6pm Saturday and 11a - 5p Sunday. VIP tickets will be available to purchase for early entry and swag on Sunday. People may be getting there early on each day, but the line usually moves very quickly.
- Will there be a line to get in?
In order to keep the crowds down inside, we will be limiting the number of guests allowed in at a time, so there may be a line. However, the line moves very quickly as we usually let in groups of people at once. There will also be food trucks outside, so you can eat while you wait.
- Are there restrooms available?
Yes, modern, plentiful, and clean restrooms will be available for guests
- Is there food available?
There will be food trucks onsite, and snack foods inside, along with a bar with coffee, tea, beer, and wine
- Can I bring my dog inside?
Sorry, but only service animals are allowed inside the building
- The show is on the 2nd floor. Are the booths ADA accessible?
Yes, there are multiple elevators available for access to the 2nd floor where vendors will be.
