Still looking for unique, locally-made holiday gift ideas for family and friends? If so, plan to stop by the Lewiston Winter Farmers’ Market Holiday Extravaganza on Thursday, December 20 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Nutrition Center, 208 Bates Street in Lewiston.
Search for great stocking stuffers among handmade soaps, body lotions and holiday scented wax melts; for that perfect gift of wellness among herbal teas, extracts and syrups, bath oils, salves and herbal rice bags; or for that final touch of holiday décor among balsam wreaths, swags and arches, Celtic Christmas ornaments and beautiful Asiatic lilies.
The Lewiston Winter Farmers Market brings together 25 vendors selling Maine-grown and -made products, including fresh fruits and veggies, pasture-raised meats, eggs, seafood, live lobster, milk and artisan cheeses, fresh bread, handmade desserts and maple syrup. Other great gifts ideas and holiday supplies available will include one-of-a-kind pottery items, jewelry, fiber art and needle felting kits, strudel, pies, preserves, pickles and, of course, handmade holiday cards.
And if holiday shopping makes you hungry, the Winter Market Café will be serving season-inspired hot soup, bread and salad combos, all at affordable prices. Additional parking is available in the parking lot to the right of St. Patrick’s Church. For more information, call 513-3848 or see their page at lewistonfarmersmarket.blogspot.com.
