Shoppers can kick off the Christmas season with unique gifts from area artisans and craftspeople Saturday as the Red Green Market returns to downtown Corinth.

The annual event is set for Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the historic Corinth Depot.

Crossroads Museum Director Whitney Worsham said they’re extremely excited about this weekend’s event, the first Green Market of the year due to the pandemic forcing the cancellation of the normal market season.

Worsham said they’ve had an extremely strong response from vendors with over 90 scheduled to offer their wares on Saturday. Shoppers will be sure to find the perfect gift for everyone on their list as they enjoy live music and tasty food from vendors.

The director said they’re planning for a safe and merry market this year.

“We’re just encouraging everyone to wear masks and social distance,” she said.

Hand washing stations will be available and they’ll also have free masks for those who need one.

Worsham said they hope the event will benefit the vendors as well as all the businesses in downtown Corinth. She encourages those attending to spend some time exploring downtown as well.

She emphasized that money spent with these vendors and with local businesses directly helps the local economy and friends and neighbors who work and own these small businesses.
