Crooked River Lighthouse Joins Big Community “Hwy 98” Yard Sale

Carrabelle, FL (November 30, 2020) – The Crooked River Lighthouse’s Holiday Country Market is joining forces with a large regional yard sale on Saturday, December 5. The “Sales are Great on 98” community yard sale stretches along Hwy 98 from Panama City to Tallahassee. Folks are invited to set up a spot in the Lighthouse Park at no charge. Yard sale spaces are available from 9 am – 5 pm.

With the holiday season here, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the seasonal market from 9:00 am-1:00 pm at Lighthouse Park, 1975 Hwy 98 West, Carrabelle, FL. The market, at the foot of the lighthouse, features vendors from the community with perfect holiday gifts like gorgeous art and photography, ornaments, handcrafted soaps, craft items, handmade goods, fresh roasted coffee, delicious baked goods, exotic starter plants, plus unique maritime items inside.

This week we will again have delicious food guests can eat while browsing the vendors. Mao’s BBQ will be selling their delicious Mojo chicken or pork, yellow rice, and cabbage. At 1:00 pm, local herbalist, Denise Williams will take visitors for a guided medicinal plant walk. Denise will lead guests for this 30 minute walk around the grounds of lighthouse and explore its natural resources. The walk costs $5 and accepts a max of 10 people.

Guests can also visit the free Museum and browse inside the Lighthouse Gift Shop for unique nautical and holiday gifts. In addition, shoppers have the unique opportunity to climb to the top of the lighthouse for a breathtaking view of the Bay.

The Market is actively recruiting new and returning vendors. Vendors may sign up at any time. The cost to be a vendor is FREE through the end of 2020. The Country Market is held every first and third Saturday from 9 am-1 pm (though vendors are welcome to stay later).
