Do you have shopping to do for the holidays but can’t bear to give any more money to Amazon honcho Jeff Bezos?

This weekend, head over to the Social Justice Holiday Market at Mayday Space in Bushwick and support local vendors. Most of the vendors are people of color, immigrants, queer, femme, low-income or longtime local residents, according to the Facebook event for the market. It’s the fourth year the Social Justice Holiday Market has been hosted.

There will be hot cider, a DJ and a free photo booth.
