The Ladies of the Market at North Market will be holding their second-annual Cookie Exchange fundraiser from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3, at the market. For a $50 donation to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, you'll get food, wine and coffee from North Market merchants and three dozen handmade cookies and their recipes. Holiday music will be provided by JazzMary.

Last year's event raised $2,500, and for every dollar donated to the Foodbank, the organization is able to distribute $8 worth of groceries to people in need.
