Holiday market happening Friday and Saturday
Posted November 21, 2022 at 9:15 am by Jeff Arnim
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.
