We’re at it again!

The Blossom Block has done it again! We have organized another wonderful pop up shop! This time, it’s a very special Valentines themed shop with gifts for that special someone.

We will only be open for two days so make sure to mark it on your calendars!

Friday, February 10th from 4-6pm. The shop will be open with art and gifts from many local artists and businesses. Plus, there will be a chocolate happy hour!!

Saturday, February 11th from 10am-3pm. The shop is open and we’ve added a special space for kids activities including games, legos, and making their own valentines gifts for others!

Not sure what to get? Don’t worry! On both days we will have expert shoppers there to help you pick out the perfect gift!!


Don’t forget to thank our sponsors! AARP, who funded our Better Block weekend, is back again to help keep our storefronts filled and our downtown happy. 🙂

Winter Wonderland

Bethel was in a winter wonderland this morning. Even the reindeer were out frolicking in the snow!!


The Holiday Market has been open for two weekends now. The Randolph Herald featured the market in last week’s edition and even photographed a few of our shop keepers hard at work behind the sweets counter.

More items are being added every week so even if you have already stopped by be sure to come back for more hand made gifts and delicious sweets!!

There’s still more time if you would like to participate as a vendor, please contact us!

This Weekend!

The Blossom Block Holiday Market is opening this weekend. Come out for our Grand Opening on Friday at 3pm. Get away from the hustle and bustle of Black Friday shopping and support local artists and small businesses at this great market!

Final Winter Sale on Blossom Block II

Phase One

The remodel of the Blossom Block is a big project and will potentially take over a year. However, it’s hard to wait that long in order to enjoy all this building has to offer. The solution? Pop ups!

Just like Bethel enjoyed during the Better Block weekend, the Blossom Block will be a host to a variety of pop up shops throughout the year starting with a special holiday version of Made in Bethel. Local artisans and crafters will have their items available for sale during the weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Last weekend a group of these artisans teamed up to plan the event. A big thanks to Dave at Bethel Village Sandwich Shop for letting us take up a whole room! Check back soon for more details. If you are interested in being a vendor please contact us!


Changing of the Guards

After 35 years of operating the Blossom Block in downtown Bethel, Nic Nikolaidis sold it to Kevin Barry on November 3, 2016. Stay tuned and check back often to see updates and for opportunities to share your thoughts on the building and its potential.

“Nic and Heidi have been fabulous stewards of the Blossom Block and a great asset to downtown Bethel. I’m excited to continue their vision of a vibrant and happy downtown.” –Kevin Barry
