The final Holiday Market of 2017 will take place on Tuesday, December 19, in Building 549. The event, which runs from 11:00 am–1:30 pm, will feature nearly two dozen local vendors and artisans. From bags and boards to meats and sweets, the market promises to have something for everyone.
“Local produce, local artisans, local bakers—all talented, hardworking, creative, personable, enjoyable, and thankful individuals,” said Julie Hartman, program analyst, Office of Scientific Operations, who has been organizing the markets for the last 10 years.
This season marks the 20th anniversary of the Holiday Markets at NCI at Frederick, a long-standing tradition that keeps employees coming back year after year for convenient, tax-free holiday shopping.
In addition to popular vendors from the summer farmers’ market, such as Cat’s Paw Organic Farm, Slice of Heaven, and JT&R Exotic Meats, shoppers can browse wares from Crimson Tulip Design, Gallery of the Woods, Kat’s Jewelry, and much more.
The Holiday Market occurs just in time for some last-minute Christmas shopping and, with its array of gift and food vendors, will give attendees plenty of choices for stuffing their stockings and stocking their refrigerators.
