GRANGEVILLE — Nearly 30 years in motion, the Grangeville Holiday Gift and Food Fair is an annual event for many people in the area.
The 29th fair is set for this Saturday, Dec. 6, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Grangeville Elementary Middle School.
More than 70 local vendors will be available with a variety of items.
“We’ve been doing this a long time,” smiled organizer Nancy Thompson. “It’s very popular and each year we have added more and more tables.”
Last year the GEMS multipurpose room, mural hallway, entry way and junior high hallways were all full of a variety of artisans offering their wares.
“There are some unique items that you cannot get anywhere else,” Thompson said.
In addition to items for sale including aprons, 31, Scentsy, jams, pickles, crocheted items, wreathes, candles, jewelry, cupcakes, gift baskets, sausage, Pampered Chef, pottery, metal and wood crafts and refurbished items, the lunch items will also be for sale.
“This is always popular and the food items sell out fast,” Thompson emphasized. “So come early!”
The food booth includes homemade turkey noodle soup, ham and turkey sandwiches, pretzels, nachos, cinnamon or orange rolls, sugar cookies, peanut brittle and caramels.
In addition to the GEMS fair, craft and food fairs will also take place Saturday at Sts. Peter and Paul and the United Methodist churches in Grangeville.
