Bazaar Fever

Thanksgiving may only be two weeks away (what?) but it’s never too early to get in the spirit for the next round of holidays.

One surefire way to get in the holiday mood is to shop the bountiful markets and bazaars that pop up in local communities this time of year.

Not only is it a way to get a head start on holiday shopping, it’s also a way to lend support to local community groups in their fundraising efforts.

Artisan crafts and home baked goods are a staple of these annual events, much like they were when market bazaars were an everyday fixture in our ancestors’ lives.

Out &About will be featuring a special bazaar and market calendar through December. Here’s just a sample of what’s coming up.
