Holiday Farmers' Market
Knights of Columbus Hall, 2206 E. 23rd Street

Looking for one-of-a-kind gifts, handmade artisan crafts and delicious, homemade baked goods and preserves for the holidays? More than 40 Downtown Lawrence Farmers' Market vendors are scheduled to participate in this year's Holiday Market.

As in the past, 46 booths will fill both floors of the Knights of Columbus Hall. Plan to pick-up poinsettias, fresh wreaths and garlands for decorating your home. Locally raised beef, bison, chicken, elk, emu, lamb and turkey will be available for your table. Jams, jellies, salsa and syrups are just a few of the homemade products which make excellent hostess gifts this time of the year. Honey and beeswax products will be offered from three local beekeepers. Artisan-made baskets, pottery and textiles can help you cross names off your shopping list! See the spinning demo and select wool yarn for those winter projects or opt for a hand-knit hat or woven shawl.

Doors open at 8:00 am when you can dine on cinnamon rolls and delicious baked goods. Plan to stay a while and enjoy live, holiday music and great lunch items. Grab some locally grown apples and cider as well as artisan cheeses for upcoming get-togethers.

LSN is an all-volunteer organization
dedicated to learning how to live lightly and sustainably.

Sustainability requires that we restore biodiversity and environmental health, strengthen relationships within and among human communities, insist on democratic decision-making at all levels of governance, insure social and economic equity for all, and reorient our aims from growth to stability. It means living within our means today and protecting the interests of future generations. LSN supports the efforts of individuals and organizations that work toward these goals.
