What: One of Vancouver's largest indie craft fairs, this brilliant, always-popular event showcases the unique work of around 95 local artisans, handmade makers and independent small businesses. It's also arguably the hippest festive fair in town, with a full complement of East Van facial hair and plaid shirts on display among the vendors and visitors. Food trucks, craft workshops and swag bags add to the fun. A great spot to do your entire Christmas shop, their apposite slogan is "...because MALL is a four-letter word." Note: this market is in a new venue this year.
