The Jeanerette Chamber of Commerce will hold a December Market Christmas Extravaganza from 8 a.m. to noon on Dec. 14 at the Jeanerette City Park. This event will be held to celebrate the success of the Chamber’s Farmers Market while providing shoppers an opportunity to purchase handmade, home grown and homemade gifts. The market will focus on supporting local and independent artists, designers, crafters and growers while giving shoppers a unique holiday experience complete with entertainment, food and a visit from Santa.
“There will be something for everyone,” said Phaedra Stockstill, the Chamber’s market manager. “This event will be one of the biggest market’s Jeanerette has seen. We are focusing on Christmas and are putting together this event to show our thanks and support for the vendors that have made our market a success throughout the year.”
           Besides Christmas tags, ornaments and Christmas items, shoppers will be able to find handmade dolls, plaques, jewelry, bath and body products, seafood, preserves, cakes and a large variety of homemade one of a kind gift items.
            The celebration will include entertainment, food and a visit from Santa. Photos with Santa will be available for a small fee.
