This holiday season, forgo the big-box retailers in favor of supporting local artisans – and have a whole lot of fun along the way.

“So many people are worried about shipping deadlines this year, and with good reason,” said Merchantile Market’s Kimberly Pak. “Come support local artisans and businesses and give yourself peace of mind that your gifts will arrive on time by making in-person, one-of-a-kind purchases this year.”
