The annual market launched in 2005 with a mere 12 vendors, but this year it will include more than 200 vendors and shops. Scheduled to begin on Friday, November 16 and run through Sunday, November 18, the event is sponsored by the Balvanuca Club, a women’s civic club, which was able to give nearly $40,000 to the Perry community last year as a result of the Mistletoe Market of 2011.

Numerous events have been bundled into the weekend, including a celebrity appearance by TLC star Myron Mixon, host of BBQ Pitmasters and author of “Smokin.” Authors Mark Ballard, James T. Farmer III, Ed Grisamore and Jackie K. Cooper are also scheduled guests, all of whom write with a southern flavor. Farmer, in particular, is a frequent writer for Southern Living magazine who has also filmed an upcoming episode of Paula Deen’s Best Dishes with renowned chef Paula Deen.

The Mistletoe Market takes place at the Miller-Murphy-Howard Building of the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter, 410 Larry Walker Parkway, Perry, GA. It operates on Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. More information about vendors, entertainment and the venue are available at www.mistletoe-market.com.
