Noma Fowler-Sandlin, artist and food maven, sends an invitation from the farmers, artisans and cooks at Farmer's Market. The Pavilion shopping at lower Festival Plaza is back as Holiday Market.

"The hours for the Holiday Market are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday this weekend (Nov 24, 25, 26), then the same hours for Saturdays and Sundays the three weekends thereafter," says Noma. " I'll have jam; Chris'll have collectible books (signed, first editions, art and antique). I don't know what other vendors will be included. And I'll be selling my Eros (Champagne and 24K Gold Leaf) Jelly, which makes a great, flirtatious stocking stuffer."

Some 50 vendors are expected, says Booths will flank the Red River Revel Ice Skating Rink at the new Pavilion.

Have you tried the skating? The cost is $8 per person for two hours, including skates; $6 each for groups of 10 or more. Hours for the fun on ice: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday; 12 to 8 p.m. Sunday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; 3 to 10 p.m. Nov. 24.; 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Nov. 24 and Nov. 25.

Skate and shop. Then, for additional cosmic expansion, visit SciPort's trippy new Space Center Building. There you will find 90 new hands-on activities, it says at
