Hobnob Holiday Market Shopping Guide
Our vendors are busy with last minute details & putting the finishing touches on their plans for their spaces…we can’t wait for you to see! This is an indoor market and the building stays nice and cozy since it’s a greenhouse so wear light layers and not your heaviest coat.
Getting to the Market
Danville Gardens is at 1307 Cleary Avenue, Danville, Illinois. If you’re coming in on I-74 get off at Exit 216 – Bowman Avenue. Turn south and you’ll reach a T in the road (Perrysville Road). Turn left and then left again at the large Danville Gardens sign. You’ll go back into a curve, veer right, and then turn right at the corner. Keep following that street and at the end is Danville Gardens. We’ll have lots of signs out and our parking guys will direct you after you arrive.
You may be parking on asphalt, grass, rock…it’s not perfect but they’ll steer you to a spot and we have loads of shopping waiting inside. Pile into the truck (there will be lots of big furniture for sale) and set out for an adventure!
When you get here please check in on social media and use Instagram hashtag #hobnobmarket if you take fun photos for sharing. We’d love to see!
Making Merry Party – Friday night, November 22 from 6-9 pm Central
We’ll have a line for those of you who already have tickets and a line for those who need to purchase tickets. They’re $10 at the door. If you already have your tickets please fill out the tear-off raffle portion - we’ll have a spot right by the door to drop those. You’ll keep the main portion of your ticket since you can use it for free admission on Saturday.
Enjoy our complimentary cookie station with coffee and bottled water. Shady Rail Farm will also have chili and cornbread, chicken wraps, and drinks available for purchase. Tuscan Hills Winery will be pouring their delicious blended wines and craft beers at the cash bar. Black Coffee Fridays will be playing live all evening.
Market Day – Saturday, November 23 from 9 am to 4 pm Central
Shop, laugh, eat, repeat! Enjoy a day of fabulous shopping, have a good time with friends, relax and eat some lunch, then head off for shopping round two! Admission is $4 per person at the door. Kids 12 and under are free.
Types of Payment
You’ll want to bring lots of cash but many of our vendors also accept credit and debit cards using their phones. A few may take checks but that’s not guaranteed.
Porters & Holds & Pickups, Oh My!
Buy something too big to carry? Have too much to carry? We’ll have 3 porters here to help and they’ll be wearing bright pink “Hey Porter!” tees. They have lots of teenage expenses so if you can give them a few bucks for helping you they would greatly appreciate it. We’ll also have HOLD shelves if your purchases get too cumbersome to carry and we’ll mark off a space for you. There will be a loading zone designated in front of the main doors so if you buy a big piece of furniture you can get close to load.
The bathrooms are located in a hallway behind in the second greenhouse and they’re marked on the Hobnob map. Both regular restrooms are designated as women’s during the market and will be marked. We’ll have port-a-potties for the guys. There is a baby changing station in the restroom on the right.

We hope you have a wonderful time Hobnobbing with us!
