MAIN STREET COLUMBUS ANNOUNCES THE FIFTH ANNUAL
“2012 HOLIDAY FARMERS’ MARKET”
Festive celebration of the season to showcase local growers, artists and crafters
Columbus…. The Hitching Lot Farmer’s Market Advisory Board and Main Street Columbus announce the 2012 “Hitching Lot Holiday Market”. The event will be held the Saturday before Thanksgiving on November 17th from 9am until Noon. “In previous years the event was form 7 am to 10 am, but after feedback and many requests the time has been moved for the Holiday Market to begin at 9 instead; we hope this change will just add to the success and popularity of the annual Holiday Market,” said Brislin.
This will be the fifth year for the Holiday Market. All local artists, bakers, crafters and growers are encouraged to participate. As always, the market is open to the public and will showcase the best of local art, local produce, baked goods, live music, children’s activities and so much more. The regular Farmer’s Market season will end on October 27, but this special event will allow market goers to enjoy locally grown and locally crafted items just in time for Thanksgiving!
The same rules that are set for the regular Farmer’s Market season apply for the Holiday Market. These guidelines, found at www.columbusmainstreet.com, state that all produce, products and art MUST be locally grown, made or “conjured up”. Items must be sold by the grower or artist who produced the item. To ensure a quality event, The Hitching Lot Farmer’s Market committee reserves the right to refuse any items that do not meet or follow the set guidelines.

Many spaces have already been reserved, but there are a few still available.
The mission statement of the Hitching Lot Farmer’s Market is to support the development of local sustainable farming by cultivating a vibrant farmers market that serves as a community gathering place celebrating local farmers, food producers, and artisans.
