Picture This: Lackawanna Winter Market Returns for 2021

Downtown Scranton Hosts a Weekend of Holiday Shopping

Courthouse Square in Scranton looks more like a winter wonderland this weekend. The Lackawanna Winter Market has transformed the block into a holiday vendor village complete with over 50 local crafters and artists. It’s the perfect way to wrap up your holiday shopping and support small businesses all at the same time.

The outdoor market kicked off on Friday, December 3 in conjunction with the First Friday art walk and the courthouse’s Christmas tree lighting. Visitors strolled through the streets, searching for the perfect handmade gifts. Carolers and carriage rides brought holiday nostalgia to life, while Scranton Fringe Festival presented live performances on the courthouse lawn.

The market will continue on December 4 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and December 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Stop by to shop and enjoy live entertainment and family activities all weekend long.

We couldn’t help but get in the Christmas spirit. Check out our photos for sights and scenes from the market’s opening night.
