Building upon the amazing success of this summer’s market, the Burton Farmer’s Market is hosting their second annual Christmas Craft Fair and Lunch on Saturday, November 16 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Christmas Fair will be held at the Burton Community Hall and the Burton Fire Hall. Admission is $2 at the door.
This year, the Burton Christmas Fair will have over 25 vendors on display. With admission, visitors will have a chance to win fabulous door prizes. Each vendor contributes an item from their table to create door prize baskets. Local Burton musicians, Barb and Lindsay, will be performing to add some local charm and wonderful music to the event.
The expanded Christmas Fair will accommodate a variety of vendors, including baking, fresh produce, knitting, jewellery, wood furniture, soaps, and a variety of crafts and food items. This year, there will be an opportunity to purchase your Christmas tree, with all proceeds being donated to a local non-profit organization. Burton’s very own coffee baristas Bob and Vivien will be on hand to prepare specialty coffees such as cappuccinos and lattes. All coffee sales will be donated back to the Burton Farmer’s Market to help with future market development.
Once again, the Burton Full Gospel Church will be hosting the lunch. A hot lunch will be served at the church from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and the cost will be “by donation.” All proceeds from the lunch will be forwarded to a third world non-profit organization. The church has recently undergone some major renovations and Pastor Dan Freeman and his wife Laura is very pleased to open up their renovated space to the community.
According to market organizer Petra Allen “We are very pleased with the positive response from vendors. We have had to expand to a second building in order to facilitate additional vendors who wanted to participate in this year’s event.”
The Burton Farmer’s Market is very grateful to local residents and visitors for their ongoing support and patronage. Your support has created a buzz about the Burton Market that continues to build. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to start your Christmas shopping and kick off the Christmas spirit.
Also happening soon in Burton: the Burton Volunteer Fire Department Christmas party, complete with a parade, dinner and dancing.
Come gather around the fire pits and visit with folks after stuffing yourself full of a deluxe pig roast dinner.
Feeling lucky? Bid at the silent auction and buy raffle tickets, and support the firefighters.
As the locals say, you can’t beat Burton for a good time.
