Patchwork is one of Durham’s most-loved pop-up markets and the biggest one yet is coming up. When the doors open to Patchwork’s Holiday Market on the weekend of December 1st, locals will flood the Armory for a chance to buy curated locally made products.

Founder, Morgan Grimm, has grown Patchwork Market into a can’t-miss event by carefully selecting vendors and always thinking one step ahead.
