Holiday market happening Friday and Saturday

Posted November 21, 2022 at 9:15 am by

One of San Juan Island’s most pop­u­lar hol­i­day events returns this week­end. The 44th Island Arti­sans Hol­i­day Mar­ket fundrais­er takes place Fri­day, Nov. 25 and Sat­ur­day, Nov. 26 at the San Juan Coun­ty Fairgrounds.

The mar­ket runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Fri­day and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sat­ur­day. The orga­niz­ers encour­age every­one to come see their favorite artists, design­ers, and crafts­peo­ple — as well as some new ones. Stacey’s Cater­ing & Con­fec­tions will be serv­ing food in a heat­ed out­door seat­ing area.

The event is orga­nized by Island Arti­sans, non­prof­it found­ed in 1978 to raise schol­ar­ship funds for young artists with­in the com­mu­ni­ty. The hol­i­day mar­ket is the pri­ma­ry fundrais­er for those schol­ar­ships. Each par­tic­i­pat­ing artist donates 10 per­cent of their sales to sup­port the schol­ar­ship pro­gram and addi­tion­al dona­tions are wel­come. Last year’s efforts led to $12,000 in schol­ar­ships being award­ed to sev­en high school seniors.
