The Christmas season is launching in Bashaw

The chill in the air and the first snow falls of the year also means Christmas is right around the corner and Bashaw is ready to launch the holiday season.

Humbug Bazaar

The fifth annual Humbug Bazaar, a popular month-long pop-up Christmas market, will open Nov. 25 and run until Dec. 17.

Find all you need for the festive season from home decor, artwork, ornaments and unique stocking stuffers, all handmade by local crafters.

There are a few new vendors this year, offering their one-of-a-kind merchandise, said organizer Moira Gates, adding there are no retailers at the market – just crafted, artisan goods.

The market brings together local area crafters together from Bashaw, Ferintosh, Edberg, and Ponoka.

The market will be open everyday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Meeting Place Coffee Roasters, located at 4813 50 St., Bashaw.
