Twelve Gifts from Market
This year’s late Thanksgiving has left me scrambling to get ready for Christmas and a month of holiday festivities. I missed the Black Friday and Cyber Monday spending frenzies and, unfortunately, I even missed Small Business Saturday, but there’s one more shopping holiday left for me: the SDFM second annual Holiday Craft Market!

Tomorrow, our farmers and food artisans will be joined by talented, local craftspeople with handmade gifts for everyone on your Nice list. These lovely wares make especially good presents for those tough cases, like the person who has everything, as they will likely not have any of these fine locally-made crafts.  With that in mind, here is a list of market gift ideas. (You might need to fiddle with the suggested quantities.)

One market t-shirt
Two Christmas wreaths
Three goat totes
Four head bands
Five mini pies
Six pepper jellies
Seven woven baskets
Eight mugs for coffee
Nine kitty wool toys
Ten beeswax candles
Eleven Shorganics soap bars
Twelve jars for spices

Whether it rains or shines, the market will be rockin’ with live music from Scott Boggs and his band Lucky Puppy, who promise at least a couple of holiday tunes. Plus, we will have all the usual and wonderful market treats like Aida’s hot cider, Ninth Street’s pastries, Prodigal’s array of cheese samples and, of course, all the local vegetables and meats you need to keep the party going at home.
