Last weekend’s Holiday Market at Chattahoochee Tech marked the beginning of the shopping season in Jasper. Organizers say the event was the largest market to date, and proceeds benefit non-profit and charitable organizations throughout Pickens County.

The eighth annual Holiday Market held last weekend at Chattahoochee Tech was the largest market held in Jasper to date with a record number of vendors and booths. 

With an all-day full parking lot at Chattahoochee Tech, Saturday attendance also exceeded expectations. Friday night’s food was a true “extravaganza of regional and worldly tastes.” 

Michelle Robertson said, “The Holiday Market in Jasper team is the hardest, most talented bunch of women I’ve ever had the honor of working with. They give their time, talents and energy to an event that gives 100% back to

the community and all of north Georgia. Their laughs are contagious, their passion is visible and their hearts are tremendous.”

The 2019 grant application will be available on December 1. Non-profit and charitable organizations can find it on the Holiday Market website, Facebook page, or sending a message to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Mark your calendars now for next year’s market – Friday and Saturday, November 15 and 16, 2019.
