The Olney Farmers and Artists Market opens for a one-day Holiday Market on Sunday, December 4 from 11 am to 3 pm.  The market will include celebrations of Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Christmas and will feature a visit from Santa and Christmas caroling. We’ll be collecting clothing for two important partner nonprofits, Our House and Aunt Hattie’s Place, so please bring your gently used or new clothes to brighten the holidays for those less fortunate.

We’ll be ready for the cold weather! Sandy Spring Friends School has donated a school bus that will be used as a warming center and will feature musicians who will keep the spirit bright inside. There will also be fire pits and heaters to keep people warm outside as well.
