Get shopping December 11 By Jillian Chandler
For those of you who are already missing the seasonal Kootenai County Farmers Market, don’t fret! As the Winter Market is coming to the Kootenai County Fairgrounds for three Saturdays during the month of December.
From 10am to 3pm on Saturday, December 11, you won’t want to miss this holiday event, which promises customers the opportunity to shop for all of their holiday needs. With more than 75 of your favorite market vendors, market-goers can shop local meats, eggs and seasonal produce, along with locally made honey, jams, salsa and cheeses—perfect for those holiday gatherings. Find hand-crafted gifts for those holiday gift exchanges and company parties, wreaths to decorate your home for the holiday, and more!
Some wonderful holiday vendors onsite will include H-Brand Plants, who will have house plants, hanging baskets, living Christmas tree ornaments and more to brighten your home this winter. Rustic Glory Flags will have handmade wooden ornaments, while Living Earth Naturals will be selling seasonal soap scents and four new fabulous bath salts, along with their body-care goodies—a perfect stocking stuffer for yourself or that loved one.
If you’re looking to be the talk of that holiday gathering, pick up a pie from Lil’ Punkin’ Pie for dessert, or pasture-raised and grass-fed hams, turkeys, beef roasts from Ramstead Ranch as your Christmas Eve dinner highlight. You can visit KootenaiFarmersMarkets.org to find out more about the vendors who will be at this year’s Winter Market.
