You might be familiar with The Summer Market, the annual outdoor shopping event on the lakefront in Avon Lake. The event’s co-founders recently announced that after 14 years in Avon Lake, they were moving it to Lorain.
So it's fitting that The Winter Market an indoor holiday shopping event and fundraiser this Friday and Saturday, also will be in Lorain. A VIP shopping experience to kick off the event is sold out, but the market will be open from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday and 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday at The Shipyards, 485 California Ave.
Admission is $5 on Friday and $2 Saturday. Part of the proceeds will benefit Blessing House, a children’s crisis care facility in Lorain.
Besides a nice selection of vendors, The Winter Market will have food trucks, food from Cafe Melissa in Avon Lake and a cash bar.
Meanwhile, make a note about next year's Summer Market. It's happening July 18 and 19 at Black River Landing. Follow The Summer Market on Facebook for updates.
