Christmas at the Farmers Market Dec. 8

You won’t want to miss “Christmas at the Farmers Market” this Saturday, rain or shine ... or cloudy. Our great farming vendors will be on hand with seasonal produce, along with some wonderful crafters and bakers.Children and their parents will enjoy decorating ornaments and hearing a musical drama by the Refuge Church “Squad” students.

A very special guest and his wife will also be there with their red suits on and laps just waiting for little ones to sit on and tell their Christmas wishes.The fun starts at 7 a.m. for those wishing to get first dibs on fresh produce and baked goods. The ornament painting activities will be from 8 a.m. to noon.

Even if it rains, most of the activities are inside or under the pavilion, so we’ll stay dry.
