ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Due to the enormous popularity of the first Hart’s Holiday Market on December 6, Hart’s is playing host to a “second helping” on December 20. Hart’s has pulled together 17 of its local vendors to help shoppers find the perfect last-minute gifts.

Vendors will be offering samples and tastings, as well as selling merchandise that shoppers can pay for as they check out with their groceries.

“The first Holiday Market was such a party here at Hart’s that we wanted to do it all over again,” said Colleen Griffin-Underhill, Hart’s General Manager. “Many vendors are returning and we invited some new folks who are going to offer samples and inspiration for planning your own holiday parties. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet the faces behind your favorite local products.”
