New Jersey offers plenty of opportunities for bohemian experiences akin to those at a relatively nearby metropolis, and Jersey City's Creative Grove Artist & Designer Market is a weekly reminder that New York City doesn’t have a monopoly on artistic talent.
Each Friday between 3 and 9 p.m. Grove PATH Plaza is host to all kinds of creatives peddling their interesting wares, from journals bound by hand to clothing sewn by the person selling it to you to handmade jewelry that can be adjusted to fit you by the artisan right there on the spot, and shows like dance demonstrations or live band performances often pop up, too. Popular Brunswick Street music store Iris Records often has a booth where you can dig through crates of vinyl records. The variety of prices and items available means there’s something at Creative Grove for just about everyone!
