By Jessica Johnston, Assistant News Director

Christmas is in less than two week. Apologies to those who were not ready to add that stress to their lives yet. Don’t worry, there’s still time. For anyone who may not be scrambling to get everything in before the end of the year, there are plenty of events going on this weekend. Saturday is the last day to enjoy the farmers’ market until the spring, so go grab some fresh, local foods. Have an event this weekend or during the coming weekends you would like to see in the planner? Send the writer an email at jjohnston@ycitynews.com.
