This week’s ‘Artisan Night’ offers gift ideas that can’t get more local

The 2nd Street Market will host its first-ever "Artisan Night at the Market" from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13.

The event is described by market organizers as “an evening of music, gift shopping and mini workshops … a perfect opportunity to purchase or create your very own unique holiday gifts.”

Coffee and holiday treats will also be for sale, and Anna Baugham will provide acoustical music entertainment.

The artisans’ night could become an annual event, Suda said.
