Meridian, Miss. Downtown Meridian also played host to the Merry Meridian Market.
Vendors filled Dumont Plaza, Main Street, as well as the MSU Riley Center. The inside, outside market carried a variety of Christmas goodies from food to holiday decor. Meridian Main Street organizes this event every year and says it's a great place to pick up those specialty items.
"People look for unique gifts and this provides an outlet for the craftsmen and the shops to put their wares in front of the consumer in downtown Meridian," Billy Beal says.
The event ran from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday.
