Our custom wreath lady, Donna McGee will return this day to take your orders for her beautiful handmade Christmas wreaths.

We are so very exited to welcome once again, as the highlight of our market season, Kinston's own, PBS A Chef's Life star and co owner of the Chef and the Farmer restaurant, the Boiler Room, Wilmington's Benny's Big Time and the forthcoming Handy and Hot in Kinston.
Needless to say, Vivian is a very busy person, but still takes time to honor our market, and its vendors by giving a cooking demo and sampling to their customers on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Her sister, Leraine Tolston, also a busy lady, and owner of Queen Street Deli, adds her talent to do the same. Who knows what deliciousness these two will create and serve as samples.
We are also privileged to have the Southern Sugar Bakery girls, former Miss Kinston, Angie Daniels Tucker and Christin Kubasko will be with us with their holiday themed decorated cookies. There will be more to this story as our Super Saturday approaches. It will be a very fun day !!! Stay tuned for updates!
