I know its December and really cold but the farmers' market vendors are a hearty group and will be setting up at the Market tomorrow. The City Market is a great place to find unique holiday items and many of our artist/crafter vendors will be setting up in the heated pavilion located on the south side of the Market. You can expect to see:
  • Heirloom Green (crocheted items)
  • White Truck Originals (stained Glass)
  • Surya Shakti (jewelry)
  • Glen P. Davis Studios (portraits)
  • Elegant Home (soy candles, incense)
  • Terri's Designs (purses, aprons, infinity scarves, hair accessories)
  • Constance Smith Custom Oil Painting 
  • Garrison Wildlife Art
  • Scrunchies Galore (scrunchies, children's toys)
If you are looking for that special holiday bakery item, Pallo Poviticia will be selling wonderful poviticia bread. If you have never tried it he does offer samples, yummy!

Bristle Ridge Farm has incorporated baked goods into their farm stall, Jeanette will be bringing fresh baked pecan pies, banana bread and pumpkin bread. All of the baked goods sold at the City Market are made in licensed kitchens which are inspected by the county where the vendor resides, just thought you would want to know this.

The Market has vendors selling free range/grass fed meat every Saturday during the winter months (unless we have a ice or snow storm of course) and farm fresh eggs. (Golden Rule Meats, DanJo Farms and Natasha's Farm) If you are looking for something a little different KC Buffalo is a great option, Peter has wonderful summer sausage. This always finds its way into more than one of the gift baskets I give to my family at Christmas, they love getting baskets filled with items I purchase at the Market.

For those of you who use honey in your holiday baking Stephen's Orchard will be selling their local honey. They also have wonderful whipped honey in a variety of flavors, my favorite is cinnamon. These are great to put in that special someones sock.

So dress warm and venture out tomorrow to support your local farmers and those creative craft vendors.
