If shopping for handmade, locally sourced gifts is your cup of tea, well, this is the right weekend for it. Artists and vendors will be selling their wares at open-house events, festivals, and craft fairs in hamlets and villages across the South Fork on Saturday and Sunday.

Vendors will fill Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church's parish hall in East Hampton during a holiday fair on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. There will be jewelry and other handmade items, wreaths and plants, and holiday cookies and refreshments. 

Groundworks Landscaping, at 530 Montauk Highway in East Hampton, will host its annual open house on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 to 3. Santa will be on hand to take requests at 12:30 both days, and there will be live music by Josh Brussell and Brad Beyer as well as hot chocolate and cider, eggnog, and wreaths, garlands, trees, and gifts available to purchase. 

At Ashawagh Hall in Springs, this year's Friends Bazaar will bring a wide array of arts, crafts, and artisans on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Offerings will include fiber arts, photography, paintings, ceramics, jewelry, as well as soaps and skin products.

The Amagansett Fire Department's Ladies Auxiliary will hold its annual wreath sale on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the firehouse. Winter gnomes and other decorative items will be available.

The Hayground School's annual Homegrown for the Holidays craft sale takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday in Bridgehampton. In addition to many vendors, there will be children's craft activities, raffles, cookies, and cocoa from the student-run kitchen, and gift wrapping by donation to benefit the school.

St. Ann's Episcopal Church on Main Street will host the Bridgehampton Association's annual holiday fair, also planned for Saturday. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., guests can browse homemade foods, seasonal arrangements and wreaths, books, antiques, jewelry, hats, scarves, and gloves.
