Customers across Pensacola are invited to join local businesses affected by Hurricane Sally, local  minority-owned businesses, and community vendors for the debut of The Block Pop-Up Market this Friday, Saturday,  and Sunday at the new Savoy Apartments in the heart of Pensacola’s historic Belmont-Devilliers neighborhood. 

“This has been a tough year for businesses and vendors throughout Pensacola due to both the pandemic and the  hurricane,” Charles Houston, Operations Manager at the Studer Community Institute Building, said. “Studer Properties is  thrilled to offer the retail space at the Savoy Apartments in Belmont-Devilliers to the community during the holiday  season both to support local businesses and to give residents the chance to shop local for great Christmas gifts.” 

The Block Pop-Up Market will be open on the first floor of the Savoy Apartments, located at 321 North DeVilliers Street,  from 4:00-8:00 PM on Friday, December 4, from 10:00 AM-6:00 PM on Saturday, December 6, and from 12:00-5:00 PM  on Sunday, December 6. The market will be open for the same hours each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in December  leading up to Christmas, concluding on Sunday, December 20. 

The pop-up market space will offer up to 26 different vendors selling specialty crafts, baked goods, and local gifts and  will also feature music and food and beverage offerings for browsing shoppers. 

“Pensacola is a resilient community and our residents and businesses have banded together throughout this difficult  year to support each other. Now more than ever it is important to shop local due to the uncertainty that this year has  caused due to the pandemic and the bridge closure,” Houston said. “We hope the pop-up market serves as a connection  between our community and our local businesses throughout the holiday season.”
