Small Business Saturday takes place all day, the Saturday after Thanksgiving and is dedicated to supporting local businesses in your community. It is the perfect opportunity to step back to support small businesses after an exhausting shopping spree during Black Friday. When you shop local you have access to unique and one-of-a-kind gifts for those special people in your lives. While you are at it, treat yourself to food, drinks and treats from local restaurants and coffee shops. All the while, fill you heart knowing you supported your friends and neighbors by shopping local. Many of the members of the Newmarket Business Association and other business organizations will be open and ready to support your shopping needs including gifts, gift certificates and more. In addition, early shoppers will receive free cloth shopping bags- filled with some great surprises including gift items, coupons and specials from local businesses!
In addition, this year, don’t miss the Holiday Craft Fair from 9 am-3pm at the Newmarket Elementary School featuring a fantastic variety of artisans showcasing a selection of beautiful, unique, homemade goods including jewelry, soaps, wooden items, holiday items as well as many local consultants. While there, be sure to visit the Bake Shopfor some yummy homemade goods. There will also be raffles and demos by the consultants.
All of this is part of Newmarket’s RecConnect’s ongoing Merry Main Street holiday program!
