Press release from the city of Hendersonville:
After taking Friday to digest the turkey and pie, the community is invited to shop local on Small Business Saturday in Downtown Hendersonville.
To start, the first of two consecutive Holiday Farmers Markets will bring seasonal, farm-fresh products and locally made artisan crafts to the Historic Train Depot in the Seventh Avenue District from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 28. A special “Small Business Saturday” reusable shopping bag will be given away to the first 50 shoppers to fill with goods from small local businesses at the market and throughout downtown.
The Holiday Market will be an opportunity for shoppers to look locally for unique gifts and holiday decorations, as well as for feast-worthy baked goods, seasonal food items, or a hot cup of coffee. Marketgoers can expect over 30 vendors with live music entertainment provided by Apple Country String Band. A second Holiday Farmers Market will be held at the same time and location on Saturday, December 5.
After taking in the sights and smells of the Holiday Market and the Seventh Avenue District, head to Main Street to continue the Small Business Saturday fun! Local businesses need the community to think local now more than ever when shopping this holiday season.
Masks are required at the Holiday Farmers Markets. Shoppers are asked to follow the 3 W’s while shopping downtown (Wear a mask, Wait 6 feet apart, and Wash your hands).
