The Christmas countdown has begun. But where to find something for grandma with her taste for indie clothing design?  How about cousin Ed who likes single origin coffee? Your niece Fantasia who wants a little known punk band on vinyl? A new bike basket for your fixie?

Any or all of those things can be found along Valencia Street and tonight the Valencia Corridor Merchant Association is hosting a holiday block party to make shopping for you and yours more fun.

Over 60 participating merchants along Valencia Street will keep their doors open late for holiday shoppers. There will also be exclusive, one night only specials and sales. Stepping into any shop you’ll not only find deals on one-of-a-kind merchandise, but also holiday snacks, festive beverages, and even some live entertainment.

The Valencia Holiday Market takes place tonight from 5-10 p.m. at participating locations along Valencia from Cesar Chavez to Market.
