Shop local at the Narrowsburg Indie Holiday Mart

Now in its second year, Narrowsburg’s Indie Holiday Mart will be held on the weekends of December 7 and 8 and 14 and 15 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. The mart is run by Pamela Mayer and Allison Ward. Ward’s husband, Paul, had the idea to create an independent artisan mart last holiday season that sells goods from different talents around the area. The trio organized it last year, and Mayer said, “We thought we would do it again, because it was such a fun success.”  Read more

But cool heads can prevail, especially in our current society where blended families are more the norm.  Read more
