The Christmas market is absolutely huge this year to cover everyone on your Christmas shopping list, even yourself.

More than 80 local artisans, farmers, specialty food and beverage producers were at the Yuletide Market this weekend.

The market is open today, until 4 p.m.

Everything from jewelry, soaps and mugs, to artwork and clothing plus plenty of tastings from honey wine and spirits to maple products and Umami from Kelowna.

The next Christmas market takes place in Kaleden on Nov. 20 for the second annual Progressive Winter Market.

Vendors, wineries, brewery, art galleries and more will be located throughout the quaint community of Kaleden and at the community hall.
