The annual Lawrence Farmers’ Market holiday market was a hit yet again Saturday. Lawrencians gathered at the Douglas County Fairgrounds open pavilion to stock up on a variety of goods from more than 40 vendors.
The smell of apple cider and the lovely chiming of the Lawrence Community Handbell Choir filled the air as people shopped and snacked. Andy Connolly also played the accordion.
Kids got their photos taken with San-Dee Claus in the morning, and Santa and Mrs. Claus in the afternoon, as adults sipped coffee, munched breakfast burritos and savored sweets from vendors such as Barton Coffee Roasters, Circle S Tamales and Chonky Sweets and Eats.
If you missed out on this year’s market, don’t worry — there’s always next year.
