In the Market crafts community many of us are gearing up for the holiday season pretty much as soon as the last one wraps up.
The weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year are always busy as we welcome throngs of holiday shoppers to our booths, which offer a wonderful array of unique gifts for all your loved ones.
This year, with so many people planning to support the ‘shop local’ movement for the holidays, we expect to be busier than ever.
Magic in the Market
At Pike Place Market, we’ll be kicking off the holiday shopping season on Saturday, November 26 with Magic in the Market. This annual event is a good time for all the family, so bundle up and join the fun.
- Santa will be under the Market Clock from 1 to 5pm, take your photos with Santa in front of the vintage farm truck.
- Buy your gifts from Market artists then have them wrapped by the Market Foundation, for a suggested donation of $5.
- The Dickens Carolers will be dressed in their Victorian attire and singing holiday songs all afternoon.
- See the lighting of the tree and holiday lights at 5pm.
Hot off the presses: we hear there are plans in the works for some super parking deals during the holiday season. We’ll post the details here as soon as they are available.
