Farmer's Market hosting annual Christmas Bazaar

Woodward, Okla. — The Woodward Farmer's Market will return for 2 days this weekend to hold its annual Christmas Bazaar.

But instead of homegrown vegetables and other produce which is the normal fare of the Farmer's Market, the Christmas Bazaar will feature a variety of homemade craft items.

Kathy Moore, public relations officer for the Farmer's Market, said the bazaar will offer people the chance to possibly find some unique Christmas gifts while also supporting local producers.

Moore said in the past the bazaar has featured everything from hand-carved wooden canes to hand-painted gourd art to hand-woven scarves.  Often the bazaar has also featured homemade baked goods such as pies, cakes and cookies, she said.

However, some producers like to bring different items each year, so if you want to find out what the Christmas Bazaar offers this year, you will just have to drop by, Moore said.

The bazaar will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Saturday at the Trinity Lutheran Church, which is located at 13th St. and Locust Ave.

"Basically it's where we held the Farmer's Market this year, but it's indoors," Moore said.
