Pop-Up Holiday Market Scheduled for Saturday, December 3rd

The Adams County Farmers Market, in partnership with Waldo’s & Co. will be hosting a holiday pop-up market in conjunction with A Gettysburg Christmas Festival

Two local nonprofits, Waldo’s & Co and the Adams County Farmers Market, will once again be partnering to host the event titled A Pop-up Holiday Market in conjunction with A Gettysburg Christmas Festival on Saturday, December 3rd, from 10 am-4 pm at 108 N. Stratton Street in Gettysburg. The event will take place in the parking lot off Stratton Street, where the Adams County Farmers Market is held during the regular market season.

Visitors to the event can expect a wide variety of offerings and a festive atmosphere to get into the spirit of the holiday season. Over 40 vendors have signed up to participate with products ranging from hand-thrown ceramics, textile arts, woodcrafts, screen-printed designs, and many other items that would make for perfect holiday gifts. Farmers who regularly participate at the Adams County Farmers Market will also be present at the event with loads of seasonal produce, gift baskets, and more.

Waldo’s & Co and the Adams County Farmers Market make for a perfect partnership to bring this special event to life. “The talented creators from Waldo’s bring really unique artwork to display, and the farmers market vendors bring delicious seasonal treats,” said Market Manager Reza Djalal. “Together, the two groups make for an outstanding event that we are really proud of, and shoppers really love.”

A Pop-up Holiday Market is part of Main Street Gettysburg’s larger A Gettysburg Christmas Festival event, which will feature a variety of programs and activities all weekend long.

Artists and creators at Waldo’s have been hard at work preparing for this special event. “Choosing local art for holiday gifts supports the dreams and hard work of makers in the community,” said Rebecca Muller, board member for Waldo’s & Co and coordinator for the holiday event. Part of the mission of Waldo’s & Co is to foster the success of low-income artists in the community, and this event helps achieve that goal by providing an affordable venue for artists to showcase their talent while building brand awareness and making sales.

The Adams County Farmers Market will be moving to Gettysburg Rec Park starting in 2023, making A Pop-up Holiday Market the last scheduled open-air event to take place at the Stratton Street location. “We’re excited to work with Waldo’s to make use of this space one more time,” continued Djalal. “There’s going to be a whole lot of festivity!”
