Market admission is free.

Organizers said the week has been busy with last minute vendor signups.

Presented by the Daily Corinthian, Magnolia Regional Health Center, CB&S Bank, Coca-Cola, H&R Block and Visit Corinth, the Green Market is in its ninth season and is the banner fundraiser for the nonprofit Crossroads Museum.

The market will also host the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter and help raise needed funds for the local organization.

Animal lovers are encouraged to dress up their pets for the annual Pet Costume Contest on Saturday to benefit the shelter.

Participates in the contest, set for 1 p.m. in front of the Crossroads Museum, should meet in front of the museum prior to contest start time to register their pet.

A pet-friendly prize pack will be given away to the best-dressed pet.

Entry into the contest is an item or cash donation to the shelter. Items currently needed include Purina brand puppy chow, bleach, blankets, towels, newspapers and cans.

The shelter will have a tent area set up in front of the museum and will also have adoptable animals on site.

The Green Market’s season-ending event is Nov. 18.

The Christmas-themed Red Green Market will also feature a professional photos with Santa fundraiser.
