The Riverhouse Reef & Grill wants to start the holiday season off right this year, and for the first time the restaurant, bar and banquet hall will host the Riverhouse Waterfront Market.
On Tuesday, more than 40 area businesses will display gift ideas for the holiday season at the “uniquely festive holiday shopping experience.” The market will be held from 6-9 p.m. in the Riverfront Room, located on the second level of the Riverhouse Reef & Grill, 995 Riverside Drive, Palmetto.
Admission to the market is free, but organizers are asking attendees to bring at least one canned good or non-perishable food item for donation to the Manatee Food Bank.
Riverhouse Reef & Grill will have food and drink available for purchase.
A variety of gifts including jewelry, clothing, cosmetics, produce, desserts, health products and decor will be offered by local businesses such as Beloved Boutique, Hometown Desserts, and Tutu Daisy Handmade Children’s Clothing.
The market also will have raffles and live music.
