How to Shop Small on Saturday, November 27th

Holiday cheer is around every corner in South End, starting on November 27th! Help kick off the season at the first of four Shop Small Saturday events, presented by Fifth Third Bank. There is something for everyone, from fresh bread at the South End Market to original artwork from pop-up vendors lining Camden Road to live music . Here is how to make the most of the event and how to explore the neighborhood at the first Shop Small Saturday event of the season!


  • How do I get there?
    • There are lots of ways to get around South End, including by light rail or bus! Check out the light rail schedule here; take the Blue Line to East/West Blvd Station. You can also take the bus. Purchase tickets at the station before your ride, or plan ahead by downloading the CATS Mobile App.
    • Uber and Lyft are also good options.
    • Hop on a Joy Rides e-bike to cruise the neighborhood!
    • If you want to drive, there is street parking in the surrounding neighborhood, as well as a garage free to shoppers at Atherton Mill, and a paid garage at 240 Doggett Street. Check out the South End Parking Map for more parking options throughout the neighborhood.

Kick Start the Day

Kick start your shopping adventure with coffee from Not Just Coffee inside Atherton Mill, Bitty and Beau’s in the Design Center, or at Central Coffee Co. on Camden Road. Don’t forget to grab a doughnut at Pepperbox Doughnuts for a sweet treat, or head to Clean Juice or Living Kitchen for healthy options and cold-pressed juice.

Lunch, Dinner, & Snack Time

Head to Indaco if you are craving Italian, and Superica, Sabor, and Barcelona are great options if you’re looking for Latin or Spanish food. Head to Bocado, The Eagle, Shake Shack, or Leroy Fox for American options, or check out the diverse menu and skyline views at Trolley Barn Fermentory & Food Hall. O-Ku, Silverlake Ramen, and Hawker’s serve delicious Asian cuisine, and Living Kitchen is perfect for the vegans in your life.

Something Sweet

Snack on something sweet and head to Pepperbox to grab a specialty doughnut before they sell out. Twenty Degrees Chocolate is a must for those with a sweet tooth, and Central Coffee Co. is known for their Zucchini Bread. Jeni’s Ice Cream or Two Scoops are perfect for the people who never think it’s too cold for a scoop (or two!). Pro tip: get a churro from Sabor to pair with ice cream from their neighbor, Two Scoops.

Beer, Wine, & Cocktails, oh my!

Grab wine at Vin Master and check out the original floor to ceiling windows that brought natural light to the Atherton textile mill, or choose from the over 400 wines available at Barcelona. Elsewhere, located under the Design Center Water Tower, is known for their craft cocktails, and Pop the Top has a laid-back atmosphere for craft beer lovers. Explore South End's brewery scene with a fresh brew at Trolley Barn Fermentory and Food Hall, which has something for the beer, wine, and cocktail lovers alike.
