    The Holiday Season can get expensive, especially when it comes to gift-giving. Not to mention all the smaller gifts that come with being a friend, a coworker or a parent. But don’t worry, there are local options at the Downtown Farmers’ Market that can help you stay within budget for the small but important gifts for people like teachers as the school year comes to a break, or coworkers from you as a secret santa, or the white elephant gift exchanges. Below are a variety of gifts that you can buy for $10 from regular vendors at the downtown farmers market:


    Come see the beautiful, spiritually-inspired work at Sunflower Sanctuary who have handmade bracelets, peace tree essential oil infuser earrings, and calavera key chains.

    Show your love with the unique and handcrafted work of Love is a Seed—their essential oil infuser necklaces, earring sets, and child’s bracelets are stunning.

    Soaps and Oils

    With approximately 40 different soaps available under $10, Southern Beauty has fun, affordable and all-natural skin products that everyone will love like their Fruity Loop Cupcake Bubble Bath Bomb.

    Gringa’s essential oil blends are wonderful and with such a wide variety you will find several that everyone will enjoy.


    Sweet treats at an affordable price make the sweetest gifts. Get amazing homemade fudge and pan de polvo from Mechel’s Treats.

    Mix it up with some delicious snack mixes, breads and cookies from GM Baking.

    Stop by Fulton’s Kettle Corn for gourmet kettle corn with a variety of holiday flavors.

    Bee the best and give some local honey from Terra Madre Mini Farm this holiday season.

    Momo’s Sweet Jams has incredible jams, such as the Strawberry Cranberry jam and banana nut bread to die for.


    Flowers can put a smile on everyone’s face and bring the holiday cheer. Visit Oso Bay Farms to build or pick your own small bouquet.

    Live Plants

    Live plants make for useful, and beautiful gifts. Visit Native Dave’s, The After Plastic Society and From the Garden for the gifts that keep on giving.

    And this is just a sample of the amazing gifts available at the Holiday Markets (Nov. 29, Dec. 6, Dec. 13, Dec. 20) at the Downtown Farmers’ Market. Ornaments, greeting cards, chocolates, added jewelry, magnets, and much more will be available, all for under $10.
