The 21st Annual Sugar Plum Market attracted nearly 6,000 attendees to shop from about 105 vendors. The City of Stafford has partnered with FBJSL to host the Sugar Plum Market at the Stafford Centre since 2004.

"This year's Market was a true testament to the importance of every sponsor, vendor, volunteer, and patron. The proceeds we raise will further allow us to give back to the community we love and serve. We wouldn't be able to do any of this without your support,” Mosley said in a press release.

Since its inception in 2001, the Sugar Plum Market has raised over $4.8 million for the community.
