For the first time, the Houston Ballet’s bustling shopping event is accessible online. The spring iteration of its Nutcracker Market, originally scheduled to run April 17-19 at NRG Center, was canceled — but you can shop offerings from all your favorite vendors via a digital marketplace.


The merchants are almost all small businesses, and almost all have Texas roots. The Ballet knows that Houstonians are eager to #supportlocal, and will be happy to know that 100 percent of the sales will go to the vendors. “We are trying to make the best of a complicated situation by offering an alternative space for our merchants to showcase their items and for our shoppers to enjoy a special online shopping event from home,” said Nutcracker Market CEO Patsy Chapman in a statement.

The virtual marketplace will be open through April 30.
