This Saturday, A Little Bazaar returns starting with the Maker’s Market, with more events to follow. The Bazaar began in 2013 and now hosts weekly themed marketplaces featuring local makers, designers and vintage sellers offering high-quality products.
In addition to extended hours and a larger menu, Mill No. 5 announced that the popular cafe, Coffee and Cotton, will be eliminating tipping. Instead, a 15% fee will be added to all orders at Coffee and Cotton and they will be paying their employees “living wages.”
Over Labor Day weekend, Drift Knitwear was the latest store to open in Mill No. 5. The shop, which sells quality knitwear and crotched items, began in 2016 when owner Darcy Babers began selling knitted and crocheted items at Boston’s South End Open Market, as well as in local Pottery Barn and West Elm retail stores as a pop-up vendor.
