Curated by SAMASAMA the Sari-Sari Pop-Up Market will be held Saturday, May 15, at 12 to-6 p.m. at Shopkeepers 1231 Florida Avenue NE.

Les Talusan and Seda Nak, SAMASAMA co-curators, named the event after “sari-sari” stores—variety stores in the Philippines that evoke nostalgia for the days where residents would pop in for something they needed and often, to discover something new.
