NORFOLK, Va. – New tenants will be coming to Selden Market this winter.
For All Handkind, a collective featuring more than 20 artists with handmade, fair trade and locally-sourced goods, has also been selected as a new incubator tenant. The retailer’s mission is to support new and emerging makers and their practice by giving them a platform to sell handmade goods.
Five percent of each artist’s sales go to a charity of their choice.
For All Handkind has been a pop-up since Selden Market opened in 2017, and it also has a storefront in MacArthur Center.
“We love the maker community that exists at Selden Market, and we are excited to bring our hands-on workshops to the space,” said For All Handkind owner Kimberly McKinnis.
The addition of Hillary Davenport Designs and Natejer Botanicals expands the selections at Selden Market.
This month, Selden Market also welcomes Chef Anne Galante’s The Stockpot with its new Norfolk location. The storefront restaurant will anchor the historic Selden Arcade on Plume Street, serving its signature soups and broths as well as other breakfast, lunch and dinner option. The Stockpot will also feature wine, beer and cocktails to enjoy at a wrap-around bar.
The market’s winter schedule adds several weekly and monthly pop-ups. Starting in February, these tenants will include:
- Pilgrim Bread – fresh baked bread
- JackEats – desserts and Filipino fusion
