It's not yet November, but we've already got Christmas shopping on our minds and so do many others, it seems.
Recently, Saskatoon's Stumbletown Distilling announced that beginning Sunday, November 1, the distillery will play host to a weekly pop-up market featuring a variety of local artisans, creative makers, and small businesses from across Saskatchewan.
Since launching in 2016, Stumbletown owner Craig Holland and his team have been adamant about the distillery’s commitment to using locally-sourced ingredients and supporting their surrounding community. These holiday markets will be a chance to continue that mission in a festive, but meaningful way.
“There will be nine markets in total and we are doing them all at no cost to the vendors,” said Holland. “Our goal is to help all of the small businesses that may be struggling a little bit right now and to really promote supporting local in these challenging times. We encourage consumers to put their dollars put back into our own economy where they belong.”
Each market will run from 1 to 5 p.m. and will feature just under 10 venders per week. The distillery also plans to host a night market with live local music toward the end of the series, but specific details have yet to be revealed.
