Your JC Holiday Market Guide
Shop Local This Season – Your JC Holiday Market Guide
One of the season’s greatest pleasures is finding the perfect gift for the people on your list. Not so pleasurable? Facing overwhelming crowds on a like-minded mission, and anxiously awaiting and tracking online packages. We plan to skip all that and stay local. There’s an abundance of local holiday markets throughout December, and we appreciate the added benefit of supporting local vendors, not to mention the chance to find one of a kind presents.
The Historic Downtown Special Improvement District/Artist and Maker Holiday Market
WHAT: Unique, hand-crafted, gorgeous gifts from local artists, crafters and artisans. Look out for locally and regionally sourced art, jewelry, home goods, clothing, specialty foods, organic bath and beauty products, and much more. There will be a rotating group of vendors on each date, so be sure to shop often!
WHEN: December 10, 13, 17, 20; from 4:00 – 8:00 pm
