You might be thinking that the second week of November is entirely too early for anything to do with the holidays, but the Circle Craft Christmas Market is a Vancouver tradition. The market, this year open from Thursday, November 7 through Monday, November 11 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West, is a hub for British Columbian artisans and makers to offer their handcrafted goods, ready to fill Christmas stockings.
Now in its fifth decade, this year’s Circle Craft Christmas Market will welcome 300 artisans—60 of them new—among them jewellers, knitters, potters, preservers, sewers, soap-makers, woodworkers and more. The full list of 2019 exhibitors is available on the Circle Craft website.
Along with plenty of stalls to browse, you’ll also find a “shopping spree” contest, musical performances, and craft demonstrations. Save $2 on your ticket price by purchasing online, and entry is 50 percent off after 5 pm. If you’re not able to make it to the market this year, you can still visit Circle Craft’s permanent location down on Granville Island, perfect for year-round souvenir hunting!
