Red Green Market

The Green Market makes its return to the CARE Garden in downtown Corinth on Saturday, Nov. 21 with the holiday-themed Red Green Market, known for its hand-crafted items.

Area residents can find the perfect Christmas gifts while supporting area artisans and craftspeople as the Red Green Market returns this November.

The much anticipated event is set for Saturday, November 21 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the historic Corinth Depot and will mark the first Green Market event of 2020.

The pandemic put the brakes on large gatherings throughout the year, forcing the cancellation of the normal Green Market season and organizers are thrilled to be able to host the holiday-themed Red Green Market to kick off the holiday season.

“We’re just so excited and it seems like all the vendors are too,” said Crossroads Museum Director Whitney Worsham.

A fundraiser supporting the museum, the market brings together artists, artisans and craftspeople from throughout the area to share their special creations.

Worsham said they’ve already got commitments from many of the favorites who have long been a part of the Green Market as well as several new vendors. She said they expect a great mix of items for sale that are sure to allow shoppers to find the perfect gifts for everyone on their shopping lists.

There will also be food vendors set up at the event offering a variety of tasty treats.

The museum director said the market is great opportunity to get downtown and shop and eat not only at the market but also at the huge variety of retail stores located in the historic downtown district.

“It’s just a fun day for everyone,” she said.

Worsham emphasized they will be taking all required steps to keep everyone safe and following all CDC and state requirements and guidelines related to the pandemic.

A few vendor spots are still available and anyone interested in setting up at the market can call the museum at 662-287-3120 for more information.
