The marketplace will feature jewelry, hand-woven bags, ornaments, toys, and home accessories.

New this year will be participation by two local organizations; North Star Industries will be selling crafts and other gifts created in their workshops and members of the Saranac Lake Youth Center will be taking orders for holiday wreaths. Local artists will provide music to shop by, and home-baked treats will be sold. All proceeds from the sale benefit local and world mission.
