Pilgrim Church Flea Market - an Open Air Market that Works in Uphams Corner

The Pilgrim Flea Market, in operation for decades, is an open air market institution in the Uphams Corner community. Not for everyone, the market sports vendors whose primary language is other than English as is also true for the customers. Vendors with a no-nonsense attitude have put up with customers wanting "something for nothing" for too long but are still willing to haggle and "offer deals." Well worth even the atmosphere, this mini-shopping mall is a great way to spend a Saturday morning - 540 Columbia Rd in Dorchester.

UP Market Challenge - Manage a Business Startup that's Right for Uphams Corner

The UP Market Planning Committee has targeted upscale arts-oriented and handcrafted products in a neighborhood (Uphams Corner) where the "regulars" are used to bargains. Review of the poor UP Market results from 6/21 raises concerns for the market's viability in the current format. With no market research, the Planning Committee seems to be operating this new complex business startup more on "hope" and the good will of the (very few) vendors. Does the current branding make sense for anyone - vendors and customers alike?
