Organizers are signing vendors for the Arkansas River Holiday Market set for Nov. 12-13 at Kay Rodgers Park Expo Center in Fort Smith.

Multiple vendors already signed up to sell at the event will be offering home items, food, holiday decor, gifts, clothing and more, said Marla Keady, one of the event organizers.

Hours for the market are Saturday, Nov. 12, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 13, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A 10 feet by 10 feet vendor space comes with a $100 fee at the indoor market. Proceeds from the event go to benefit the the Miss Arkansas River scholarship fund, Keady said.

Keady also encouraged shoppers to attend the market to support young ladies in the area and “complete all your holiday shopping in one location.”

“Holiday market is a shopping extravaganza,” Keady said. “We will feature exciting and unique gift buying opportunities to start your holiday season.”

Besides raising money for the local scholarship pageant, the holiday market is a way for shoppers to support local vendors, Keady said.
