Northville, Plymouth set Holiday Greens markets

The highly anticipated Northville Holiday Greens and Winter Market will take place this year, despite the current pandemic.

The annual event, sponsored by the Northville Chamber of Commerce, will be slightly revamped and moved to a new location this year, organizers said. This year, the sale will take place from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21 and from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 22

The market will move to the corner of Seven Mile Road and Center Street, across from Northville Downs. Organizers said this larger space will allow more local farmers, growers and vendors to participate. Greens vendors will be selling traditional holiday wreaths, roping, d├ęcor, centerpieces, and porch pots while the “Best of the Best” Northville Farmers Market Vendors will also be on hand. Vendors will be selling sweets including cookies, cakes and breads, mushrooms, dog treats, coffee and hot chocolate, French breads, Polish items and food, beef, Kettle Corn, and much more.

Parking will be available onsite or across the street at Northville Downs.

The health and safety of all attendees, vendors and chamber staff members will be a priority and the sale will be an open-air market and all COVID-19 guidelines will be followed. Visitors will be required to stay 6-feet apart, touching of the products should be limited and face masks are strongly encouraged within the sale area. 

Dogs will not be allowed in this new venue and visitors are asked not to consume food or beverages on site and not to linger or socialize. 

In Plymouth, the Holiday Green's Market is planned from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 28 in downtown Plymouth at The Gathering, located off Penniman Avenue directly across from Kellogg Park. 

The Green's Market will include some of the favorite Plymouth Farmers Market vendors, providing opportunities to shop for a variety of holiday greens, crafts, baked goods and seasonal treats.  

The Walk of Trees display in Kellogg Park will also be complete for visitors and Nov. 28 is also Small Business Saturday, to help encourage holiday shopping at local merchants throughout the downtown area.
