The second edition of the Winter Wonderland Holiday Market was held this past Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Lebanon Paper Box building (“Boxie”) and LebTown was there to capture it.

The market runs each Saturday through the end of the month, featuring a full slate of vendors, artists, and concessions available to the public.
