Market celebrates all things winter

The 2nd Annual Winter Wonderland Market returns to the Valley

The 2nd Annual Winter Wonderland Market has returned to Invermere and will be celebrating all things winter with a variety of crafts and artisans. The market has become a cornerstone of one of the Valley’s favourite seasons.

Winter Wonderland was created to ensure that guests have a warm and welcoming experience, filled with holiday cheer, while they scope out the perfect holiday gift for friends and family.

Finding that one special item will be made simpler this year with a choice of over 50 vendors displaying unique, beautiful, and hand-crafted items that can only be purchased at this one of a kind market in the mountains.

The venue will be accompanied by live music, coffee from Stolen Church Coffee Co., chocolate artisans and tea vendors with a huge variety of first time vendors, and some from out of town.

“Everything will be 100 per cent hand-made by local artisans with a selection of warm winter hand-knits, hand-sewn baby clothes, locally-produced honey, baked goodies and decor items for the home,” said organizer Shannon Root of Baby Root Designs.

Ms. Root and her husband love the winter season and wanted to create something special to honour it while providing an exciting event for the community to enjoy.

“I wanted to create another opportunity to sell my handmade items before it gets too late in the season and I wanted to create a really fun family-oriented event — it’s our second go at it and we’re really excited” she said.

There will be a silent auction and guests can bid on an original selection of items that will be displayed for the special occasion.

Admission is free and proceeds from the auction will be donated to Family Dynamix, the Glacier Peaks Gymnastics Club, and the Columbia Valley Skating Club.

The market is slated for Saturday, November 18th from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. and Sunday, November 19th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Columbia Valley Centre.
