Vicksburg will have a Winter Farmers’ Market during Christmas in the Village on Saturday, December 3. It won’t be as large as the usual number of vendors who offer their goods under the roof of the pavilion on Richardson Street, said Carol Meyer-Neidzwiecki, co-market manager.
During the activities for the afternoon of Christmas in the Village, the market will be right in the heart of downtown Vicksburg at 101 E. Prairie Street in the former Unique Furnishings location. There won’t be as many actual vegetable vendors, since most of what is available in the winter consists mostly of root vegetables, she said. It will be open from 2 to 5 p.m. Over 16 vendors have agreed to set up shop including bakery products, soap vendors, Green’s beefalo, Aubry’s smoked nuts and Eberstein’s eggs, to name a few.
The parking on the downtown streets will begin to be cleared at 4 p.m. but there will be parking available all day in the lots behind the buildings and by PNC Bank.
