2017 market christmas event 5 x 5 with out text

Thanks to everyone who visited our recent Artisan Event at Market. Our recent Event was a great success in many ways. Our Artisan vendors introduced our customers to new products and talents. Our non profits were able to introduce themselves to the public and rasie funds as well as having 5 dogs and 1 cat find forever homes. In addition, many new visitors to our event discovered our market and our excellent local foods. The music was enjoyed by everyone. Only the weather was grumpy, starting to rain about 2, cutting short our event. But the market raised enough money to make donations to the Bastrop County Animal Shelter and to the Bastrop Emergency Food Pantry (our 2 adopted non-profits).
