If you haven’t made it to the Downtown Holiday Farmers’ Market, you have one more chance.

Tonight, Dec. 19, is the last of the 4-week Holiday Market Series at the Downtown Farmers’ Market, which is also their largest holiday market yet. Tonight is also the last Farmers’ Market of 2018.

The special market features the normal food producers and small businesses, with additions for one-of-a-kind gifts, including holiday-themed baked goods and treats. Holiday activities are available for the whole family.

“GROWing local means shopping local,” said GROW Local South Texas Executive Director Aislynn Campbell. “We double the number of vendors for our Holiday Markets providing shoppers with locally-crafted gifts and stocking stuffers.”

The first 100 kids ages 3-12 tonight will get a free $5 Veggie Voucher to spend on fresh, local produce, thanks to NEC Co-op Energy.

The Downtown Holiday Farmers’ Market begins at 5 p.m. and runs until 8 p.m. at the Art Center of Corpus Christi on 100 N. Shoreline Blvd.
