The Jersey City Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit made up of people that live and work in Jersey City.
We believe that a strong local economy leads to a thriving community.
Our team is dedicated to providing a support structure for the businesses that make Jersey City such a beautiful and diverse place.
Started in 2013, The Jersey City Project began as a winter holiday market for local vendors and artisans to sell their goods. The success of Project: MARKET lead to the creation of Project: EATS, our summer local food festival. Over the years our two yearly events grew from hosting a handful of vendors to well over 100 local businesses participating each year. And each event sees over 30,000 attendees from across New Jersey and New York.
The success of MARKET and EATS led to our next program, the Small Business Grant Fund. Launched in 2018, the grants provide small Jersey City businesses with financial resources needed to expand operations, or emergency relief help from unforeseen physical or natural disasters.
Our Work. Our Home.
We are proud to partner with The City of Jersey City for our events. Our outdoor markets are held at City Hall Plaza, located in front of City Hall in Historic Downtown Jersey City. Visitors using public transportation from both New Jersey and New York Metropolitan areas can access our events by using the Grove St. PATH station, which is 2 blocks away.
