Forget Black Friday; holiday shopping season starts up around Halloween these days. That includes ever-popular pop-up markets featuring a variety of vendors. One such event, the MN Christmas Market, is setting up shop at Nicollet Island Pavilion for a daylong mega sale featuring giftable wares. Think candles, hand-knit scarves, kitchenware, and more. This market is also a benefit party, with 7 percent of sales going to the Reel Hope Projects, which helps foster kids find homes.
