Hahira Honey Hole Market for Charity

HAHIRA — The Hahira Honey Hole Market for Charity will be held on May 17, from 8 a.m. -1 p.m. in the park, behind the red caboose in downtown Hahira.

 The Hahira Honey Hole Market for Charity is a community wide “street market” packed with local folks selling personal items, crafts, vintage goods, repurposed items, handmade treasures, jewelry and more.

There will be live music, courtesy of local musicians all throughout the day. In addition to helping families, the group also tries to place as many unwanted animals with new families as possible, as nearly all animal rescue groups from Lowndes County participate. 

 Each year, organizers identify multiple families from the community that could use a little extra help. Some of these families are struggling with mounting medical bills, or have lost their home to fire or foreclosure, or suffered the loss of a job. One hundred percent of the exhibitor entry fees, along with donations from local businesses and citizens will go directly to benefit these families. While important, the donations aren’t going to a global charity or a national organization; these are actual families that live right here in the community.

For more information, contact Vicki Tomlinson Rountree at (229) 560-5735.
