Grapevine - December 3 2006 Market

this week
- Holiday Market Music Schedule
- What's Coming to the Market This Week?
- This Weekend's Craft Vendors

The weekend's market is our fifth Hillsdale Holiday Market. The festivities will take place at the market's location in the Wilson-Rieke parking lot and the former Estby gas station, 6361 SW Capitol Hwy in Hillsdale where the Hillsdale Alliance is conducting a used book sale and and the Hillsdale Business and Professional Association is holding its annual Chili Feed fundraiser for local school music programs. Local school groups will perform throughout the day and we have craft vendors with seasonal gift items. It may be chilly but there's chili, hot cider, coffee and neighbors to keep you warm.
