Farmer’s Market on the Square to transform into holiday palooza


Christmas is coming early for the Farmer’s Market on the Square in Granbury.

For the third year in a row, the market will host its own holiday edition from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 26, in the Visit Granbury parking lot, located at 201 E. Pearl St.

Featuring a holiday-decorated location, a meet-and-greet with Jolly Old St. Nick himself, plus vendors offering various Christmas items for sale, the event is sure to put everyone in the most cheerful holiday spirit.

“This market is different because I let pretty much everybody in, anybody that has a small business,” said Rebecca Taylor, owner and operator of Farmer’s Market on the Square. “Usually, we don't let Mary Kay or Pampered Chef in, but this one I do because it supports small businesses — and that's the reason I started this market was to support small businesses.”

The Christmas market will feature approximately 30 vendors, like Messy Mama’s that will serve lemonades and hot chocolate; Love Tab Gourmet Apples that will provide caramel apples; and Taylor’s own business: Salsa Boss of Hood County.

Other vendors include Gilda Wonders, Pinky’s Peak Provisions, Red Dirt Woodwork, Texas Cookie Company, Heartshine Farm, Mi Casita Imports, Southern Reflection Kettle Korn, and more.

“We’ll have quite a few vendors, and I'm trying to get some food trucks and some entertainment,” Taylor said.

Attendees can also get a free picture with Santa Claus from 12-3 p.m.

“My favorite part is to know that I'm in support of the small guy, and that’s the best part of the whole thing is knowing that the vendors are there and seeing the people come in and be responsive to them,” she added. “I really enjoy the connection that people have made to the vendors. It’s really neat to watch people know who’s going to be there and remember to come back and visit them the next month.”

Farmer’s Market on the Square is held on the fourth Sunday of the month in the parking lot of Visit Granbury from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. March to June; from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July through August and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. again in September.

This will be the last Farmer’s Market on the Square for this year.
