Arts and entertainment plus at Williams Lake Medieval Market

The Medieval Market returns to Columneetza Secondary School in Williams Lake Nov. 24 and 25.

The Medieval Market returns to Columneetza Secondary School in Williams Lake Nov. 24 and 25.

The market is a great place to buy beautiful handmade gifts from artisans from around the Cariboo and beyond.

There is also local produce for sale, live music and magic, and a concession.

The Medieval Market has become a gathering place for people to spend the day visiting, shopping, relaxing over a bite to eat, and enjoying the talented musicians and other entertainers.

All proceeds from the market support School District #27 programs.

Wares for sale at the market are handmade by the artisans.

Along with returning favourite vendors selling pottery, weaving, jewellery, original art, clothing, books, children’s toys, beeswax products, hats and mitts, blacksmithing, glassware, wood products, felting,  musical instruments, photography, pursicles, herbal products, magic wands and furniture, we are happy to include many new vendors.

New products include saddles and braided leather goods, handmade buttons, quilting, wooden pens, leather cuffs, wood carvings, and cribbage boards and pegs.  Services that you may enjoy are astrology readings and biodynamic craniosacral therapy.

The Farmers Market continues to expand from its base of the highly sought after Mackin Creek carrots to include a variety of vegetables, local honey, treats, locally roasted coffee, fudge, preserves, wildberry jams and jellies, spice mixes, and dried and fresh fruit.

Entertainment features local musicians Oren Barter, Pharis Romero and Marin Patenaude, Youth Fiddlers, Carmen and Dena, Jenny’s Jam, Quintet Plus, Christine Constabel and Sherri Taylor, and Willow.  And all the way from the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia comes that fiddlin’ hometown girl Sarah Beck.

Back by popular demand is Magical Jesaja.

Last year the 14-year old wowed the crowds with his amazing magical feats.  He’ll have shows at 11, 12:30 and 2 p.m. both days in the dining area.

 

The concession will feature hearty soups and wraps, smokies, treats, and Uncle Paul’s coffee.

So make a day of it.  Come and peruse the market stalls, buy a few Christmas presents, relax over a cup of Uncle Paul’s coffee, and sit a spell and listen to the entertainment.  Maybe you’ll even win one of the many door prizes donated by the vendors.

 

 

If you prefer to shop at a quieter time, we suggest coming on Sunday afternoon.

All of this for only a toonie admission (kids under 12 free).  It’s November 24 and 25 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Columneetza Secondary School in Williams Lake.
