Port Jefferson Village’s soon-to-be-opened artisan marketplace is hosting one-day pre-grand opening on Saturday, March 23.

The store, which will be called The Shelf, will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“I want to give the community a sneak peek and opportunity to purchase the work that the artists, entrepreneurs, and artisans have brought to the store over the last couple of weeks,” said the marketplace’s owner Diana Walker.

The Shelf, located at 218 East Main Street, will hold up to 20 vendors, all of whom will have a 90-day contract with the store.

Since taking over the 650-square-foot building in February, she says she has already filled 17 spots, most of whom are sellers that live or once lived in Port Jefferson.
In addition to selling items, The Shelf will also host events that will be run by the sellers after hours.
The Shelf’s grand opening celebration is set for Friday, April 19, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. There will be entertainment and light fare at the event.
