The New Brunswick Community Arts Council will present its first ever Holiday Market on Dec. 14, a bazaar of artists and merchants from the tri-state area selling their goods.
From 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the George Street Playhouse, shoppers can peruse holiday crafts, clothing and jewelry, pottery and artwork.
Free hot chocolate and hot apple cider from The Fresh Grocer will be served, and professional singing groups will perform holiday carols.
"The idea for the Holiday Market came about from creative brainstorming by the Arts Council on how we could support local artisans," said community arts council chair Susan Painter. "We know many talented people who simply need an outlet for their work."
Painter said the council has "taken care" to make the market accessible to all of New Brunswick, including residents, students and art enthusiasts, with items in all price ranges.
The George Street Playhouse is located at 9 Livingston Ave.
