Grab your Valentine and Head to the Asbury Park Bazaar!


By Jenny Vickers Chyb

John Lennon and Paul McCartney once wrote “Can’t buy me love, no no no, no…” but we beg to differ. You can buy love - and lots of it - at the Asbury Park Valentine’s Bazaar happening Saturday, February 9th, 2019 from noon to 6 pm in the Grand Arcade of Convention Hall!

We’ve curated a special selection of vendors who handcraft goods made with love … every item is handmade, unique, independent, or vintage! Stop by the Bazaar to treat yourself or pick up a perfect Valentine’s gift for someone you love. By supporting Asbury Park Bazaar and our vendors, you are supporting a small business economy that makes our community thrive. Sounds like a match made in heaven to me!
