1500 Wilson BlvdRosslyn will host a holiday market next weekend to give residents a chance to shop for presents while enjoying some local businesses for themselves.

On Friday, Dec. 13, all day long, the Rosslyn Business Improvement District will host a “#HolidayReady” pop-up market at 1500 Wilson Blvd. Billed as a “day-long, music-filled, party-like atmosphere,” there will be boutique shopping, gift wrapping as well as snacks, sweets, cigar and spirits tasting and massages.

Rosslyn BID also encourages shoppers to bring gently-used clothing to donate to the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network. New Rosslyn coffee shop Caffe Aficionado will be giving coffee roasting demonstrations and handing out free samples. Several D.C.-area confectioners will also be selling their wares.

“It’s part of our job to build community in Rosslyn and create retail opportunities here,”  Rosslyn Business Improvement District President Mary-Claire Burick said in a press release. “As Rosslyn gradually transforms into a vibrant urban community with a strong retail presence, this #HolidayReady Market fills an important need for Rosslyn residents and workers to shop, socialize and just relax and have fun.”

In addition, the Rosslyn BID, after canceling its annual Light Up Rosslyn celebration, will start lighting rooftops in Rosslyn tomorrow (Thursday), according to the BID’s Lee Anne McLarty.
