The Cranston Residents Association is back with their annual Christmas Market at Century Hall. Each year, the goal of the Cranston Century Hall Christmas Market is to showcase the work of local artisans, and they’re doing just that. All items for sale were made or grown locally. This year’s market will also include a Kids Market. Admission is free of charge and the Century Hall Christmas Market is set to run on Saturday, November 20th from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.
