2013 Holly Jolly Market offers local items in time for the holidays

The threat of a snow/rain mix did not keep shoppers home on Saturday, as they visited the 4th Annual Holly Jolly Market, but the weather did have an adverse effect on some of the King George Farmer’s Market members. One farmer sent an email that his crops had frozen in the field and he would not be at the event.  

Some members of the KGFM signed up for an inside space, “just in case”. Friendly Cottage Farm and Go Nuts, along with “Poppin John’s Kettle Corn” braved the grey skies and set up in the courtyard of King George Elementary School.

Inside over 30 crafters and farmers set up in the cafeteria, creating a holiday market with great variety. There were fresh eggs, greens, turnips and jams and jellies, all grown and made locally. Nature pictures from Mark Fike, handmade jewelry from Africa, and bags from Honduras were displayed along with felted hats and wood pens from the county.

The KGHS Chorus sang crowd favorites and brought their own Santa Claus to have pictures taken with.

Love Thy Neighbor, Sealston PTA, KG County Historical Society, KGHS DECA and the Dahlgren Lions and the Optimists were out in support of their organizations and doing a little fundraising.

There was jewelry, decorations, clothing and crafts for all ages. Even dogs and cats were covered.

The collaboration between the KGFM and local crafters was the brainchild of the late Ruth Herrink, Publisher of The Journal. She knew people wanted to shop locally if given the chance. The annual Holly Jolly Market is just that chance. Growing every year, it is proof that Ruth’s vision is viable and wanted by the locals. Shop Local … it’s good for us all!
