Holiday Market

salisburylogo-noarchCentral marks it’s eighth year of the Holiday Market, on Friday and Saturday (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), December 1 & 2, 2017. Once again, the Holiday Market will be held in conjunction with the Holly & Ivy tour sponsored by Salisbury House & Gardens of Des Moines.

The 2017 Holiday Market will feature over 50 vendors and local artisans, showcasing unique handmade crafts, jewelry, furniture, and home decór – including a vintage offering, great food and more!


Free and open to the public, the 2017 Holiday Market is sure to be a fun time for all! Special this year: tour a JOPPA tiny house and learn about their mission to create a community of unconditional love, support and hope for the homeless as we work together to prevent and ultimately end homelessness.

Soup, bread and pastries will be available for purchase (cost of lunch is $5 and includes choice of soup and bread), to fuel your Christmas shopping! We’ve even heard there will be Santa sightings along with holiday music.

The Holiday Market is an annual fundraiser to support Central’s mission efforts, locally and across the world. This will be great time to finish your holiday shopping and support a good cause.
