Getting into the spirit with Holiday Market in Olney -- Gazette.Net


The Olney Farmers and Artists Market returned to the MedStar Montgomery Hospital thrift shop grounds for a special one-day-only holiday event on Dec. 2.

The event featured a visit from Santa, roasting símores, Christmas caroling, a farm animal parade and potato pancakes. Vendors, some of them new to the market, offered unique gift items and specialty ethnic dishes.

Shoppers donít have to wait until the spring for the market to return. Organizers recently announced a new Winter Market, which will be held at the Sandy Spring Museum each Sunday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., from Jan. 6 through April 28. About 25 vendors are expected, said market founder and president, Janet Terry.
