After a year's worth of Amazon shopping and DoorDash delivery, local markets and makers are looking to capitalize on stir-crazy consumers' desire for experiences.

"Right now, there is a real want for people to be out and about and be social again," said Careyann Weinberg, the director of Selden Market in downtown Norfolk. That's why Selden, a city-owned retail incubator and pop-up retail space, is gearing up for a summer of themed pop-up events, which have already proven more popular than ever before, Weinberg said. Selden's foot traffic has exploded in recent months, up more than 400% in May compared to the previous year when coronavirus restrictions were in place.
