It’s pumpkin spice season or sweater weather or, dare we say, Christmas shopping time!  Whatever you call it, you can come and enjoy it at Merrickville’s Community Centre on November 4th and 5th. The Christmas edition of the popular Merrickville’s Makers Market takes place indoors at the Centre, located at 106 Read Street, over two days.

Each day will feature 30 unique artisans anxious to show and sell their work. Everything available is either entirely or partially made by hand in their creative spaces, whether it’s a kitchen, a sewing room, a studio or, even, a hybrid combination of workshop and living space. To learn more about each of our makers, please visit our website.

Collectively, the makers represent an eclectic assortment of artists and artisans: local and nearby community members dedicated to their crafts and dedicated to providing a top-notch event for market-goers. Merrickville is a popular market for them to help showcase the beautiful village, the welcoming public and incredible sponsors. 

Sunday November 5th will see the addition of the Disco Bus to the streetscape of Merrickville. It’s a shop local initiative that provides fun times and transportation to area villages and towns. The shoppers will take in the sights, attend the market and, as all market attendees are encouraged to do, visit, shop and enjoy the Jewel of the Rideau, Merrickville.

We welcome everyone to visit us on November 4th and 5th.  This will be our last market of 2023. Admission is free. There’s plenty of parking.
