As pop-up shops continue to dominate Houston's growing food and fashion scenes, Evelyn's Park Conservancy combines the pop-up concept with the charm of a locavore market.
This Saturday, the park, which is currently undergoing construction, will play host to a special edition of Pop-up In the Park across the way at the Bellaire United Methodist Church. Opting to skip out on a stop at your usual weekend farmers' market may be wise, as this one-of-a-kind bazaar will feature more than just organic foods.
The special edition event will of course feature local vendors showcasing artisan foods, but also clothing, jewelry, art and a variety of locally made products. As a platform for those Houstonians who may not have a brick and mortar storefront, Pop-up In the Park allows artists and designers to showcase their unique styles.
Local vendors include direct trade coffee curators Mueva Coffee, hand-dipped chocolate-maker Alitz Chocolatier, jewelers JPeace Designs and Olmox, as well as the Lucky Fig food truck. Additionally, the operators of the upcoming Evelyn's Park café, Jamie and Dalia Zelko, will be on hand selling honey from their Heights Honeybee Project. With a picture-perfect weather forecast and free admission for all, Pop-up In the Park promises to be an event worth popping over to.
Pop-up Across the Park takes place at Bellaire United Methodist Church, 4417 Bellaire Boulevard on Saturday, April 2 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
