If you’re yearning, especially this year, to have your heart filled with the joy and comfort reminiscent of Christmases past, join 70 local vendors offering a diverse array of quality handmade, homemade, and homegrown goods at the Olde-Fashioned Holiday Market, gathering December 19th from 4:30 – 8:30 PM for our final market of the season. Visions of sugarplums, stockings stuffed with unique artisan creations, a feast of delicious food for the holiday table, festive twinkling lights of the season, smiles beaming with warm feelings for our friends and neighbors, and the excitement of the Olde Beaufort Farmers’ Market’s annual, evening, open-air market; find them all nestled under the magical oaks on the Carteret County courthouse grounds. We will follow our well-established safety protocols: mask wearing, handwashing, and social distancing and invite everyone to come enjoy this beautiful event!
Fall is here with all its golden sunshine and cooler temperature splendor! What a beautiful season to be in Carteret County! The water glistens and sparkles at this time of the year like no other and the sunsets are unbelievably vivid with vibrant pinks, oranges, and purples.
Nature’s splendid show paints the market with patches of warm sunshine that speckle the ground under the massive old oaks, with the oranges and dark greens of pumpkins and cool weather veggies, with the scents of apple and sweet potato pies, with the seasonal colors appearing in artisan work, and in the relaxed movement of shoppers winding their way thru the vendor booths. There is much to appreciate…right now…right here!
Our market is known for its friendly vendors, its safe operation, its diverse, quality products, and its community spirit, all of which are evident each Saturday morning. We welcome all as we gather every Saturday morning from 9 – 1 through November 21st. After a brief hiatus we will return for our annual Olde-Fashioned Holiday Market, an evening market filled with beautifully lit tents decorated for Christmas and filled with local vendors offering homegrown and homemade food and unique, one-of-a-kind handmade artisan treasures. It’s the place to find special gifts for everyone on your list, to fill your grocery bags with fresh healthy food, and to be filled with the joy of the season. Mark your calendars and stay informed by checking our FB and IG pages and our website: oldebeaufortfarmersmarket.org. Many thanks for your support throughout the 2020 season!
