The Medieval Market returns to Williams Lake Nov. 23 and 24 at Lake City Secondary, Columneetza Campus.

The market is a great place to buy unique hand-crafted gifts from local artisans and by doing so you support both SD 27students and your local economy.

The market also includes fresh produce from local growers, live entertainment and a concession.

The Medieval Market is organized entirely by volunteers so all profits go to Lake City Secondary Students.

Students working throughout the weekend earn money towards team sports, leadership, band, science trip, and other causes and events.

Students working at the market develop important skills in customer service as well as a better appreciation of fine arts and music.

Last year the Medieval Market Committee was proud to establish the Emerging Artist Awards where two bursaries, each for $750, were given to graduating students in financial need who are pursuing a future in the arts.

All wares for sale at the market are handmade by the artisans.

When you purchase something at the market, not only are you buying something unique and beautiful, you also know that your dollars will stay in the community.

Along with returning favourite vendors selling pottery, weaving, jewelry, original art, clothing, books, children’s toys, beeswax products, hats and mitts, quilting, blacksmithing, glassware, wood products, felting, photography, handmade buttons, wooden pens, leather cuffs, wood carvings, cribbage boards and pegs, herbal products, and furniture, we are happy to include many new vendors.

New products include baskets, garden hoes, draw knives, braided leather, saddles, chaps, stamps, and Linde Bros. new line of wood flooring.

The Farmer’s Market will include Mackin Creek carrots, local honey, fudge, chocolate, preserves, locally roasted coffee, spices and fresh apples.

Come early if you want to buy some carrots.

They sell out quickly!

Entertainment includes Oren Barter, Jean Wellburn, Carmen and Dena, Quintet Plus, Big Lake Symphony Orchestra, Youth Fiddlers, Opus Musicum, Pharis and Marin Patenaude, Sarah Beck, GadZukes, the Lake City Secondary Band, and Corky Williams.

The schedule will be posted in the Nov. 13 and 22 issues of the Tribune/Advisor.

The concession features hearty soups and wraps, smokies, cookies, apple cake, and Uncle Paul’s coffee.

The Medieval Market is a win, win, win for everyone.

Students earn money towards the project or school trip of their choice and the local economy is supported.
