Whether you are look­ing for in­gre­di­ents for your hol­i­day en­ter­tain­ing or unique pre­sents, hand­made by lo­cal crafts peo­ple, shop­ping lo­cally just got a lot eas­ier in Bridge­wa­ter. Lead­ing up to Christ­mas, the Bridge­wa­ter Farm­ers’ Mar­ket As­so­ci­a­tion is host­ing a se­ries of five Sun­day mar­kets.

Among the ven­dors will be fa­mil­iar faces and prod­ucts from their out­door sum­mer mar­kets who will be joined by lo­cal crafters. Caro­line Borle, pres­i­dent of the non-profit so­ci­ety that op­er­ates the mar­ket says, “We started with two De­cem­ber mar­kets in 2015, to try it out. Since then we have increased them by one each year. There is a healthy de­mand from ven­dors who want to join us at this time of year and our cus­tomers re­ally seem to have em­braced the op­por­tu­nity to buy lo­cally for the hol­i­days.”

This year’s of­fer­ings in­clude such sta­ples as lo­cal eggs, meats and sausages, honey, breads and pas­tries, jams, jel­lies and pre­serves, to beer, choco­lates and fudge, soaps and body care prod­ucts, art and art cards, pot­tery, jew­elry, socks, mit­tens, hats, wooden toys, dog treats and more. The ven­dor mix changes each week, how­ever, more than half of the ven­dors are at­tend­ing all or at least four of the five days. Cus­tomers are en­cour­aged to check out the more de­tailed in­for­ma­tion through the mar­ket’s web­site, so­cial me­dia and news­let­ter.

From Sun­day, Nov. 25 to Sun­day, Dec. 23, the mar­kets will take place at the Lunen­burg County Life­style Cen­tre from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the five Sun­days lead­ing up to Christ­mas.
