Surrey, BC – Museum of Surrey has once again partnered with the stɑlə̓w̓ Arts & Cultural Society for the Third Annual stɑlə̓w̓ Christmas Craft Market.

This year, the holiday market will be hybrid, featuring hand-crafted goods from 30 unique Indigenous and local artists and artisans. Shop the virtual market from home November 12 to December 19 or head to the museum on Saturday, November 20 for the in-person experience between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. 

Handmade jewelry, natural soaps and lotions, leather, and delicious gourmet treats are just a handful of the goods for sale. Last year, the Market moved solely online as a result of the pandemic. With safety measures in place, the Museum of Surrey is pleased to welcome back some new and returning artisans. 

stɑl̓əw̓ Arts & Cultural Society Program Coordinator Phyllis Atkins credits the museum’s flexibility in transitioning to an online, and now hybrid model, for the continued success of the program. “Thanks to the great work and technical support of the staff at Museum of Surrey it was a huge success supporting 44 vendors!” she said. 

The virtual marketplace can be accessed through the events section at surrey.ca/museum, complete with product photos, artist biographies, and links for purchasing. While proof of vaccine is not required to visit the museum, masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces for people five and over. Space is limited to ensure physical distancing.
