‘Tis the season for local bounty and holiday fun! Fresh on the heels of its successful summer and fall Sunday Market, the village of Chester will host a Holiday Market on Sundays, Nov. 24 through Dec. 22. Between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. every Sunday, stroll through the village while shopping the market of local growers and producers of artisan baked goods, jams and jellies, farmstead cheese, fall vegetables, fresh fish and meats.
To add to the holiday spirit, Chester shops, restaurants and galleries will be dressed up in their holiday finery and offering special events, such as holiday storytelling, tastings, live music, and more. Activities for kids and their families will include dough-ornament making and a marshmallow toss. Nonperishable foods will be collected for the Shoreline Soup Kitchen and the Chester Elementary School sixth graders will be selling poinsettias.
Free parking is available at the town’s parking lots at 20 Water Street and Maple Street, both a short walk to the center. More information is available at www.facebook.com/chesterholidaymarket.
