The very popular Circle Craft Christmas Market returns for its 38th year this month at the Vancouver Convention Centre West. I have still never been but everyone I have talked to (even during the summer months) says that they can’t wait for Circle Craft. From knits and ornaments to unique kitchen wares and gift ideas, this market has it all.

The market is an initiative of the Circle Craft Co-Operative, a BC Artist Co-Operative that is “dedicated to providing opportunities for craftspeople to connect with the community.” Year-round you can find locally-made goods at the shop on Granville Island and as I mentioned, the market is an annual highlight for many.
