Holiday Marketplace in downtown Winnsboro

WINNSBORO – It may be cold and rainy outside on Saturday, but it will be warm and fuzzy inside at Winnsboro’s annual Holiday Market Place featuring offerings of gifts, crafts, bakery confections and local farm produce – fruits, vegetables, meats, honey and more – from farmers and artisans of Winnsboro, Blythewood and Ridgeway.

The holiday event, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., will be located in the enclosed ground floor of the Town Clock and across the street in the former Desportes Stables which has been newly renovated with a rustic, barn-like décor.

“It’s a great place to find Christmas treasures, those special gifts not available in stores, and something for everyone on your list,” former President of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce Terry Vickers said. “The products are unique and the prices are low,”

Downtown merchants will also be offering their own Christmas surprises. Santa will be visiting in the shops and there will be refreshments and caroling.

“It’s going to be a great day for shoppers,” Vickers said. “There will be so many wonderful items to choose from. Don’t let the weather stop you. You really won’t want to miss it.”
