But this is the first time it has been held outdoors.

It gives local artisans, and craftsmen the chance to show off their wares.

Julia monts was the event coordinator.

"because of the pandemic there haven't really been a lot of markets.

You know unfortunately celebration village wasn't able to happen this year in different markets and shopping hasn't been as popular so we're really excited for the opportunity to give some of the these craftspeople and artists an opportunity to sell when they might not have had the opportunity almost all year so it's a great way to do it outside and safe."

Tupelo artist christy stewart says the link center holiday market is the first event where she has felt comfortable participating.

"i specifically rely on shows to do my business.

Shows are my real money maker.

And i mean we've had so may restrictions we haven't been able to shows.

A lot of them have been cancelled.

But yes this is one of the first ones that i've actually felt safe participating in."

I'm just glad to be out in sunshine and actually get to see some people from a safe distance and visit today."

Taki moore and his wife own the ragged dolgged doll company.

He says their dolls are very unique.

A lot of the items that are used are from thrift stores so this is something very unique.

This is something you won't find elsewhere."

And something else that are unique that you can't find elsewhere are these pieces of jewelry from the north mississippi gem and mineral society.

"we collect.

We go on field trips.

We have workshops where we make jewelry with metal and stones.

We actually rent a room here at the link center where we have our equipment.

And what would a holiday market be without food.

Brian burgett owns the mobile chef.

"it's great to come out and get your name out especially with everything going on the world today you know with the pandemic and everything.

But food trucks are coming back very popular right now they're picking back up curbside people don't want to dine in and come out and support food trucks."
