HIT AN EVENT

 

 

 

Follow the Selden Market Facebook Events page to stay up to date on workshops, evening events, and even upcoming pop-ups. There's always something going on, from plant swaps to makers markets for a one-of-a-kind experience.

EAT + DRINK

 

You can’t shop on an empty stomach. We recommend a sugar rush compliments of Shake It Up Shakes. The colossal shake masterpieces are beautiful and taste even better than they look. Wednesday night Ramen Night is the move at The Stockpot Norfolk from 11am-8:30pm. Stockpot has killer desserts, breakfast, and happy hour too. Grab breakfast at the Downtown staple, D’Egg diner Thursday-Sunday before our shops open. Go on vacation without leaving Downtown Norfolk and get a taste of Caribbean culture at Cocojam.Chef Sydney Meers' much-buzzed about restaurant, Syd's FishPig Cafe, is also adjacent to Selden Market on Main Street. With eclectic decor and a uniquely unforgettable menu that is classic Syd. 

DO NOT leave the market without a S’mores Amore brownie. Soft brownies and blondies with a graham cracker crust are topped with homemade marshmallow and toasted in front of your eyes making this a uniquely Downtown Norfolk dessert. 

No shopping trip is complete without a coffee in hand. Cafe Genevieve offers a true Parisian cafe experience featuring French macarons and artisinam beverages. Or unwind with beer or cocktails at The StockpotD’EggSyd's, or Granby Waffle Shop

 

SUPPORT LOCAL ARTISANS

 

Lorak Jewelry’s workshop is within their modern storefront where they create handcrafted jewelry including custom engagement rings and wedding bands to commemorate a lifetime of love. In addition to hand stitched wallets and bags, let Werther Leather Goods create a custom belt for you while you shop.
