Handmade, Homemade, Homegrown
Sunset Beach Holiday Market Returns to Sunset Beach Town Park on December 4.
Pure Markets returns to Town Park for its annual Sunset Beach Holiday Market on Saturday, December 4 from 10 am to 3 pm.
“We are so happy to be back in the park,” says Chris Wilson, Pure Markets co-manager/owner. “It was wonderful to be at Silver Coast Winery, our temporary location during COVID, but there’s no place like home!”
Co-owner and operator Jim Wilson says the markets this year have been “bigger and better than ever.” According to Jim, there will be more than 90 vendors offering items that are all handmade, homemade or homegrown. Pure Markets never allows resale items in order to support the local makers, bakers and growers.
YehMon Food Truck will be returning with locally popular Jamaican ribs, chicken, rice and beans. Calvin Lewis, owner of the food truck, now has a full-time job other than selling his delicious food, but he is returning as a favor to Jim and Chris. “Calvin was a regular at our Summer Market a few years ago,” Chris says. “The fire department and the police department were weekly customers. They will be happy to have him back. We’re grateful to him for agreeing to come.”
Another local favorite, Blondiez Donuts Food Truck, will return from their much-needed break for the Holiday Market and will be making their delicious made-to-order donuts. Blondiez was a summer must have at the Sunset Beach Summer Market. Shoppers know to come early before the line gets long.
Shoppers will enjoy a stroll along the beautiful waterfront in Town Park while visiting each vendor’s holiday shop offering one-of-a-kind items perfect for gift giving.
Among the items available will be award-winning photography by Gary Baird and Mark Head; pottery; original art; local honey; alpaca wool items such as blankets, ponchos, scarves, stuffed animals and socks from Alpaca Vina ranch; natural candles, natural bath and body products; holiday décor; fabric art; N.C. sea salt; handbags; unique jewelry; and the area’s popular 341 Repurposed with high-quality beach furniture and décor.
Whimze Willow will return with hand-painted, handmade pillows, many that are holiday themed. In addition, there will be wellness products such as CBD oils, elderberry products and natural organic oils and tinctures. If that’s not enough, Jason McMillan will be out of his truck and back in his old location popping his now-famous Dixieland Kettle Corn; Charlotte will have her son Joe’s Travel Snacks packaged for gift giving; Ms. Jupiter will have her pies, cookies and pastries; Chris will be there with his Cosmic Cheesecakes; Homestead Farms will have cocoa bomb; and there will be so much more!
Pawsability will be taking pictures of friends and family with Santa. Both human and furry animals are welcome. All proceeds will benefit Brunswick County animals.
Pure Markets and their community of vendors support local school children through the BeKIND Project, mainly from donations collected from seasonal lemonade sales. At both of their Holiday Markets they will have the popular Giving Tree. For a donation to the project, a shopper will select a tag off the tree. On the back of the tag will be the name of a vendor who has generously offered a gift.
The shopper can redeem their gift by visiting that vendor’s holiday shop. All proceeds go to Brunswick County School Children.
