This year’s Christmas Market will feature nearly 85 LCM vendors who must “Make It, Bake It, or Grow It” to participate.
The event coincides with American Express Small Business Saturday, which encourages consumers to “Shop Small” and support owner-operated retailers, restaurants, and other merchants and boost the local economy.
At this year’s Christmas Market, LCM vendors will be set up in six locations throughout the YMCA, enabling shoppers to browse at a leisurely pace. Vendors will showcase everything from artisan-made clothing and jewelry, to artwork and woodcrafts, to small-batch foods and beverages.
Children’s activities will include a visit from Tinsel — cousin of LCM mascot Daisy Mae — who will lead kids in creating a gingerbread house; the display will be entered into the Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual gingerbread house contest.
