Come join us as we celebrate the holiday season with this last Farmer’s and Artist’s Market of the year and town- wide merchant’s open house.

Come get your fresh vegetables, fruits, and baked goods, along with canned goods or that one of a kind Christmas gift.  We will have Artist’s with their paintings, note cards and wooden items.  Many handmade and/or hand-knitted items, including jewelry, scarves, bags, children’s clothes, soaps, caps, etc., will be available. Fresh wreaths and garlands will also be available. All of these make great Christmas gifts.

Along with these items will be Lion’s Club brooms, Chamber of Commerce cook books, peach jams, jellies & salsa items and Avon products (books for ordering).

Beginning the day will be the Johnston UMC Mission’s Group BBQ sale.  The Missions Committee will be selling BARBECUE made by Jerry & Marianne Smith from 11:30 AM until sold out on Calhoun Street next to the mural/warehouse building. Barbecue will be offered for $8 per lb. or $5 for sandwich/chips/drink.

Next on this day will be a Ribbon Cutting at Tidwell Jewelers, at 3:30 PM.  Tidwell Jewelers has expanded their store and are ready for the holiday season.  Come join the Edgefield County Chamber of Commerce and the Mayor of Johnston as we welcome this expansion to the Town.

The Edgefield County Chamber of Commerce will also be having a Hot Dog Fundraiser at the market.  Beginning at 4:00PM, come get a hot dog/chip/dessert/drink for $5.00.  Also available will be Coffee & Hot Chocolate for $1.00.
