stockmarketSTOCKTON — Stockton’s local craft and curators’ market will have a new home starting April 15.

Stockmarket is moving from the Miracle Mile to Caldwell Park at Pacific Avenue and Alpine Avenue.

It’s the third location for the pop-up market, which started in downtown Stockton in 2014. It moved to Pacific Avenue on the Miracle Mile last fall after it outgrew its original location. It’s now moving to the park because holding the market in the street was becoming impractical, Stockmarket founder Amy Sieffert said.

Stockmarket also said trying out new locations was also true to its “vision of exploring and activating different areas of the city.”

Organizers expect the move will spark a significant increase in attendance, more vendors and food trucks, greater accessibility and a more relaxed atmosphere.

The market will run April through September, held from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month. A December holiday edition is planned but details are still being developed.
