A popular Christmas market in Vancouver is back for in-person shopping.
And eight Tri-City companies are slated to show and sell their wares at Circle Craft, which runs from Nov. 10 to 14 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West.
- Grass Mountain Pottery
- Canvas Candle Company
- Swirly Spoons
- Infusion Premium Foods
- BLINK Chocolate
- RECVRD Candle Co.
Postponed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Circle Craft Christmas Market will see 200 artisans for this year’s edition, including more than 40 new vendors such as clothing designers, potters, jewellers, wood and metal workers, glass blowers, and candle and soap makers.
Selected by a jury based on their talents and diversity, the artists hail from around the province, but some are also coming in from as far afield as Montréal; Toronto; Calgary; Winnipeg; Halifax; Milo, Alta.; Moose Jaw, Sask.; and Cowansville, Que.
Started in 1972, Circle Craft is run by a B.C. artist cooperative and sees thousands of shoppers visit the Vancouver hub every year.
