Featured This Week

@Celebration Pointe

Nov. 18h, Finally the beautiful fall weather we should be having will arrive for the market this week. This means that farmers, bakers, prepared food vendors, artists and musicians will be providing a great experience for your Wednesday afternoon.

A monthly Wednesday Art at Celebration Pointe event continues this Wednesday. In November and December it has expanded to two consecutive weeks to take advantage of the holiday season. Those dates will be Nov. 11th and 18th and Dec. 9th and 16th.  All artists of high quality work are invited to participate by applying at https://unionstreetfarmersmkt.com. The event will include art, face painting for kids and live music in conjunction with the weekly farmers market and will be held on the promenade.
