Merry Market kicks off shopping fun

Published 8:30am Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Black Friday? Cyber Monday? No. Even better. It is Merry Market Saturday!

Come join us for the 4th annual Holiday Bazaar and Merry Market from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Natchez Convention Center.

The event planners have moved the date up so our locals can get a jump on their holiday shopping.

You are sure to discover fantastic, unique gifts that you can’t find just anywhere. This year we are hosting a wide variety of vendors, which include some who are local and some new friends from out of town. They are all special and include a great mix of merchants, artists and craftsmen offering a wide variety of goods to meet every need on your shopping list.

Jewelry, holiday décor, fashion clothing, handmade art, stationary, collegiate gear and a little bit of everything in between can be found at this Merry Market.

Slick Rick’s will be selling delicious lunches so shoppers can spend all day without having to leave for re-fueling. There will be frozen casseroles and baked goods to take home to help with the age-old problem of what to feed the family during this busy season.

We will have a wrapping station so you may get your gifts home without the nosy family members wanting to sneak a peek at your purchases. You may also store your gifts while you shop.

This event is a fundraiser for Trinity Episcopal School, which benefits from vendor registration fees and admission collected the day of the event.

These funds help ensure the tradition of academic excellence and diverse opportunities available for students in grades prekindergarten through 12th grade.

All sales the day of the event go directly to the individual vendors. This event is also intended to benefit our community as a whole as an adjunct to other Christmas in Natchez events.

This great day of holiday spirit and shopping will be this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Natchez Convention Center.

There will be a $5 fee per person to attend. Please check out our list of fantastic vendors and sponsors on our Facebook page: Trinity Merry Market Holiday Bazaar. Get together with family and friends and make this event part of your holiday tradition.

Trinity Merry Market thanks our Gold Sponsors for making this event successful: Bluffs & Bayous, Concordia Bank, Dianne’s Frame Shop, Dr. S. Lee Falkenheiner, Rock 105, Silpada-Brandae Miller, Silas Simmons, Steve Plauche & John Bergeron Investments and United Mississippi Bank.
