Come shop this annual holiday market featuring beautiful, hand-crafted treasures from more than twenty nonprofit fair trade and charitable organizations around the country and around the world. The “difference” between this and other holiday markets is that this is not a fundraiser for our church; all proceeds are returned to the artisans and crafts people who produced the items, either directly, or through sponsoring organizations and fair trade groups.
You’ll find apparel, accessories, jewelry, home decor, textiles, table linens, baskets, children’s clothing and toys, holiday ornaments and decorations, greeting and note cards, bath and body products, specialty foods, and much more.
Your purchases will support women’s cooperatives, schools, orphanages, job training and life skills programs, environmental conservation and sustainability initiatives, and more— from right here in the Upper Valley to as far away as Nepal and Zimbabwe. This year, we also have several opportunities to contribute to organizations supporting immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers in the Upper Valley and beyond.
And, if all that shopping makes you hungry, delicious soups and baked goods are for sale in the Christmas Market Café.
Parking Info— There is limited parking for mobility-impaired shoppers in the church parking lot. On Thursday and Friday (Nov. 7 & 8), there is free parking in the “permits only” section of Dartmouth’s G-Lot, the far end of the Dewey Lot at the end of Dewey Field Road— a 5-10 minute walk to the church. Please note that parking is not permitted in the green, “visitor parking” section of G-Lot; so please park in the spaces marked in white. A church shuttle van will run from the Dewey/G-Lot bus shelter to the church every 15 minutes. On Saturday, the Maynard and Dewey lots are also available for parking.
