The community is invited to the festive shopping day at Montecito Country Mart on December 5. There's something for everyone in the family – pop-up shops with great gifts, fun for kids and tasty holiday treats.

Celebrating the holiday season with the community, Montecito Country Mart has announced its plans to welcome neighbors, friends and visitors to its Winter Market on December 5. This special day of festivities features seasonal activities, treats and enjoyment for both grown-ups and children.

For adults, the Winter Market will be a festive shopping experience, with 13 pop-up shops just for the day where special gifts are sure to be found, as well as the seasonal offerings of Montecito Country Mart’s onsite purveyors – inviting boutiques, artisanal eateries and convenient services. In addition, to make the shopping day easy and convenient, the Winter Market offers valet parking and gift wrapping – both complimentary.

For kids, there are pony rides and face-painting. And the holidays would not be complete without a visit from Santa, who leaves behind his busy winter schedule to take complimentary photos with children on December 5, 12 and 19. All these activities are held from 11 am – 2 pm.

Montecito Country Mart has made sure that special holiday treats are a delectable part of the day. As they browse for unique finds, adults can toast the season with mulled wine or Champagne. For kids of all ages, there are hot chocolate and Christmas cookies. From 12 – 3 pm, Autostrada Pizza provides tasty lunch-time snacks. In addition, there will be live music throughout the day, with holiday classics on guitar by Ted Lennon from 11 am – 2 pm, and holiday music in the folk/Americana style by Fergheart from 2 – 5 pm.

According to James Rosenfield, owner of Montecito Country Mart, as well as Country Marts in Brentwood and Marin, the Winter Market is a perfect occasion to welcome the community. “The holidays are a time to show our appreciation for family and friends,” said Mr. Rosenfield. “We invite our neighbors to celebrate the season with us, and to shop, taste and enjoy.
