Come holiday shop with us, Market Customers!
Wow, do we have a weekend of goodies, glitter, and delight for you! Our Winter Market is this Saturday, December 9th, 10 am to 3 pm at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds. Enter off Kathleen Avenue where there is free parking and free admission to the Market. We’ll be all set up and ready for you in the Jacklin Building with so much to see and buy, complimentary refreshments, and holiday raffle baskets. It’s going to be a wonderful shopping weekend.
And if you get hungry while shopping the Winter Market, you can enjoy Carpe Diem Crepes or Aebelskivers who will be braving the weather outside, or Friendly Island Grill, serving inside. We have tables for you to sit to eat, rest and enjoy the sounds of live music from Carli Osika.
