A beloved Vancouver tradition, the Circle Craft Holiday Market draws artists, makers and craftspeople from Canadian coast to coast. This year’s event showcases 291 vendors from as far as Halifax throughout the Convention Centre space. Featured arts range from ceramics, glass, metals and wood to jewellery, textiles and paper. Packaged foods, bath and body products, and even skateboard art are also in the mix; this is a market that proves that no one is “impossible to buy for.” A full list of vendors is available online.
The 2023 market exhibitors comprise 24 “Budding Artists”, 87 new vendors, and 42 members of the Circle Craft Co-op, an artist-run endeavour with its flagship store located on Granville Island year round. This year’s wares include Indigenous-made items, traditional crafts made modern, as well as a focus on sustainability, recycled materials, and non-gendered, size inclusive fashions.
The annual market, run since 2021 by Signatures Shows Ltd. and known simply as “Circle Craft”, has
become a cherished event for tens of thousands of visitors from across the region. It’s a gathering place
for those seeking beautiful, handcrafted items for their homes or thoughtful gifts for loved ones – whether that gift is a Grizzly Bear abalone pendant, a jean jacket embroidered with Ukrainian stitch work, or a hand-poured 100% soy candle.
