Saturday Market X FutureMarket @ ESCOLTA

Saturday Market X FutureMarket @ ESCOLTA is a offering of 98B COLLABoratory in partnership with the First United Building (FUB) and the Escolta Commercial Association (ECAI). It is a bazaar, garage sale, thrift shop, black market and meeting place. Artists, craft makers and designers sell their wares: from artworks, limited edition shirts, hand-made clothes, books, bags, jewelry, accessories, toys, zines, CDs, stickers to one-of-a-kind merchandise.

Escolta was the commercial hub in the early 1900’s. During its heyday, most fashionable and trendy items were sourced here. People shopped for stylish apparel, swanky shoes, hard to find objects and voguish things in Escolta. This is our way of a throwback to the rich heritage of Escolta and a taste of what can happen when we help revive this district.
