You could tell it when you walked through the Franklin Farmers Market this past Saturday – Christmas is just around the corner. There was a bit of chill in the air, hot apple cider to sip on and lots of smiling faces throughout the market. The holiday spirit is alive and well. Many of you were stopping by to do some gift shopping at the FFM and we know why.
After all, where else can you find such a fantastic variety of handcrafted gifts, all made by local artisans?
Then there were the people we saw with lists in hand, looking for the fresh food needed to create the perfect holiday meals.
Beautiful fresh cut trees, garlands and wreathes were going home with lots of folks too to be decorated and ready for a visit from Santa. And then there were those of you who strolled around munching a warm donut and wishing everyone you saw “happy holidays.”
Christmas is 10 days away so there’s just one more Saturday to shop at the FFM before the holiday. Make your list and check it twice and then get to the Franklin Farmers Market this upcoming Saturday for the best in fresh local food and handcrafted, unique gifts.
Who doesn’t like to sleep in a little later on the weekend? While our farmers are used to being early birds, they too like to stay in that warm bed and snooze a bit more on a cold winter morning. On January 3rd, we will give them the chance to do that. The winter market hours will change. The Franklin Farmers Market will open an hour later at 9am and close at noon for the remainder of the winter market.
One of the things we love most about market days is the chance to snap photos of happy people and good food. This past Saturday was no different. Lots of photos were taken. Did we catch you smiling for the camera? Take a look at the big Franklin Farmers Market photo gallery and see for yourself!
