Shawville market welcomes early Christmas

The Shawville Farmers’ Market celebrated the winter holidays early this year, changing over to a Christmas in July theme on Saturday. Vendors were encouraged to decorate their stalls with Christmas lights, and some broke out the seasonal knick-knacks to coincide with the theme.

Christmas came early to the Shawville Farmers’ Market, though many would have to call it a Florida winter with the lack of wintery white surrounding the shopping experience.
In an effort to boost awareness and beat the heat, the weekly market decided to celebrate Christmas in July on Saturday, complete with decorations and more vendors.
While some vendors hung strings of lights, others brightened the scenery with reds and greens via their plants. As well, a few busted out the Christmas crafts to coincide with the theme, displaying a selection of knick-knacks, bows and other décor for homes.
