Find Local Artists At Wintry Market Weekend
Adorable, kitschy, independent, unique, fun, creative: if any of these words describe the kind of products you love to buy, than the 2015 Wintry Market is for you.
On Saturday, November 21 from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday, November 22 from 10am to 3pm, you can find more than 60 local artists selling their wares at El Korah Shriners building. While you shop the stalls, the kids can be entertained by coloring the art of illustrator Julia Green. And don't forget to snap a photo in the fun holiday-themed photobooth.
For the animal lover on your shopping list, stop by Clover Patch's booth to see the handmade hand puppets of adorable critters. Foodies will love the charming aprons for sale by Sweet Pea Aprons, or pick them up a yummy treat at Boise Bakery. Check out Beardface Supply Co. or BANANA ink for the men in your life. We'll stop giving you shopping ideas now, because there are seriously so many vendors to see!
Find yourself a bit snackish while you're perusing the numerous options available for purchase? Then you can step out into the parking lot to grab a bite from local food trunk vendors, The Funky Taco and P. Ditty Wrap Wagon. If you're more in the mood for a beverage to warm you up, stop by St(r)eam Coffee Bike, or head downstairs to the Oasis Bar in the El Korah basement that will be open during the market.
For more information about this fun event, visit the Wintry Market website. Or RSVP (and invite your friends) on the Facebook event page. You can also sign up to use the Boise Library's 3D printer at the event. We hope to see you there!
