What is Shop Small Steamtown?

Our mission: To foster an environment where creativity and community THRIVE. How are we accomplishing this? Through public events, a spotlight on the arts, and opportunities for small businesses to take root in downtown Scranton once again.

How do I join #SHOPSMALLSTEAMTOWN as a vendor/musician/artist/organization?

We want you to join our shop small community! We have the following opportunties available:

  • Shop Small Steamtown Events: Our Shop Small Steamtown seasonal events bring in visiting vendors, local artists, live music, and unique interactive experiences. This is not your average craft show! We work hard to think outside of the with a focus on community and a little something for everyone to enjoy! 
  • First Friday Scranton: You've heard of First Friday Scranton, right? Well, IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW ... the Scranton Public Market is a stop on Scranton's First Friday art walk every month. We host a variety of visiting creatives in the SPM amongst our in-house food and artisan vendors, as well as artists exhibits, performances, and unique attractions all throughout the Marketplace at Steamtown. All FREE to you and the public! *Selling vendors will need to obtain Scranto Peddlers License. 
  • Scranton Public Market: In the heart of our second floor sits the newly renovated Scranton Public Market. This community of small, unique, and locally owned businesses is a great place to grab lunch during the week or enjoy live music and a drink on the weekends. Boasting an array of artisan goods and serving as a weekend hub of activity and special events, there's always something to see! It runs every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11:00 PM - 4:00 PM, but vendors are free to open additional hours and many do! It's a great place for a startup to take root or a growing buisness to expand into an easy second loaction.

Have we convinced you? We'd love for you to join us as an artist, musician, organization or vendor at any or all of these incredible events! Whadayah say?
