Running around town to make sure your home has everything it needs for the Holidays? Columbia is filled with unique, local markets. If you want to be sure you have the main "holiday essentials" read more on where to find them:

Spotted Salamander's Holiday Catering

Feeding an entire group isn't particularly the easiest task. Which is why local, holiday catering has become a popular method for relieving that pressure.

Freshly Chopped Holiday Tree

Speaking of holiday decor, I'd highly suggest grabbing a tree to decorate if you haven't already! We know most of our holiday fanatics have had theirs up since after Thanksgiving. If you're one that hasn't already picked up a tree, here are a few places you can check out:

🌲Forest Lake Gardens | 5210 Trenholm Rd, Columbia, SC 29206 | Great selection of trees and conveniently located in Forest Acres

🌲Hollow Creek Tree Farm | 228 Windmill Rd, Gilbert, SC 29054 | Featured in Country Living magazine. Hurry they close for season Dec. 17th!

🌲Price's Tree Farm | 228 Maple Rd, Lexington, South Carolina | Come cut down your own tree and occasionally visit Santa

The HoneyBaked Ham's Holiday Ham

The HoneyBaked Ham in Northeast Columbia (there's another in Irmo if you're out that way) is a well-known choice for their flavorful Holiday Ham. Whether you're feeding a group of 5 or a group of 20, they'll surely point you in the right direction. 

Don't wait until the last minute, it can get crowded.
