For the ﬁrst time ever in the Christmas Market’s 12-year history, the event will be held in two locations in downtown Ligonier — enabling market-goers to stroll around town, enjoy the holiday decorations, and grab a bite to eat before or after ﬁnding the perfect gifts for family and friends.
The LCM’s 2019 Christmas Market will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the following locations: • Ligonier Valley YMCA, 110 West Church Street • Ligonier Valley Library, 120 West Main Street.
This year’s Christmas Market will feature nearly 100 LCM artisans, crafters, farmers, and food processors who must “Make It, Bake It, or Grow It” to participate. Some 85 vendors will be set up throughout the YMCA to sell their locally produced goods, while 14 vendors will be selling merchandise in the library’s Pennsylvania Room. The event promises a truly unique and meaningful holiday shopping experience on a day that coincides with American Express’s Small Business Saturday. That nationwide celebration encourages consumers to “Shop Small” and support owner-operated retailers, restaurants, and other merchants and boost the local economy — reinforcing the LCM’s theme.
