Join Batavia MainStreet as they present their third annual Holiday Market with the new addition of a Thursday Night Sneak Peek preview shopping night limited to 100 ticket purchasers. The event will be held at Congregational Church of Batavia at 21 S Batavia Avenue on November 10th from 6-9pm.

"This year we wanted to offer a relaxing time for our customers to come and browse the market," commented Ana Sheldon, Coordinator of the Artisan Collective. "It will be a great opportunity to enjoy shopping with a friend while supporting local artisans and vintage vendors."

Tickets for the preview shopping night are on sale for only $10 at many Batavia retailers. Please purchase your ticket at Salvaged Heart Vintage - 14 N Island, FAWN Gifts -2 East Wilson, The Tea Tree - 29 N River, Furniture Dollies - 103 N Washington and K.Hollis Jewelers - 147 S Randall. Tickets will include your all access pass to shopping without crowds as well as tasty desserts from local baker- Knead, Crumb & Crust.

"Patrons who get their tickets will be able to see all of the one-of-a-kind goods first and could very possibly get all of their Holiday shopping done in one fun night!" Sheldon continued.

The Holiday Market opens to the public Friday, November 11th from 12-8pm and again on Saturday, November 12th from 10am-5pm. Both days will include around 40 local artisans and vintage vendors. Vendor lists as well as Downtown Batavia retail business lists will be passed out to all patrons to promote not only shopping at the Holiday Market, but continuing to shop local by visiting downtown retailers.

"The Holiday Market has become a great shop for those wanting to purchase unique gifts for those on their Christmas lists," said Jamie Saam, Executive Director at Batavia MainStreet. "This year, we want to promote shoppers to not only enjoy patronizing the market but to continue out around town and shop where their heart is, right in Downtown Batavia at some of our local retailers."
