This year's Wellesley Marketplace will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 20, at the Wellesley Middle School.
With the winter holidays fast approaching, it's time to mark your calendars for the 34th Wellesley Marketplace on Nov. 20. Just in time to help you find unique gift ideas for everyone on your list, this year's Marketplace will be the biggest ever, featuring an unprecedented number (more than 130) of exhibitors from across New England, with some from as far away as Jackson, Wyo.
Each year Wellesley Marketplace is held on the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving, superseding even "Black Friday" as the local kickoff to the holiday shopping season. Marketplace is presented as a community fundraiser by the Wellesley Hills Junior Women's Club (WHJWC), and all ticket proceeds directly benefit local charities and scholarship programs.
An Annual "Can't Miss" Event
Shoppers throughout the Greater Boston area anticipate Wellesley Marketplace for a variety of reasons. Meghan Murray, Wellesley Marketplace chairman, says, "We know that many shoppers view Marketplace as an annual 'can't miss' event. It is the day they grab their mother and grandmother, and maybe now even their daughters, and spend the day together." . . .
