The Lawrence Farmers’ Market’s annual holiday market event will return Saturday to the Douglas County Fairgrounds open pavilion. 


With more than 40 vendors, the market aims to offer something for everyone just in time for the holidays. In addition to meats, wines and veggies, items such as jewelry, dried flower arrangements, candles and pottery will be available as potential gifts for anyone lucky enough to be on your “nice” list. 

The market will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10.

Even Santa Claus will be there, all the way from the North Pole. San-Dee Claus will be there from 9 a.m. to noon, and Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there from 1 to 4 p.m., according to a Facebook post from the market. Kids of all ages can get their photos taken with Santa and visit the arts and crafts table. All are welcome to enjoy the bell choir and live music.
