If you didn't take our warning last week that there isn't much time left in getting together gifts for the holiday season, here it is again: Hanukkah started yesterday; Solstice is December 21; Christmas is in less than two weeks; and Kwanzaa begins the next day. If you're still looking for that last gift for someone on your list, we encourage you to keep it local. This weekend 540WMain will host its Holiday Makers Market, featuring Rochester artists, artisans, and small businesses — part of the vendor list includes Fly Guy Ties; Shades of Color, which makes calendars, mugs, note cards, and other objects celebrating African-American life; and health and wellness website The Gluten Free Chef.
540WMain's Holiday Makers Market takes place Saturday, December 16, at 540 West Main Street. 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Free. 420-8439; 540westmain.org.
