– Christmas Market With a Difference
Now in its 31st year, Christmas Market With a Difference offers handcrafted 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 100% of the proceeds are returned directly to organizations helping people in need worldwide. This is not a fundraiser for the church.
Shop for 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 support organizations including artisans’ cooperatives, fair-trade groups, schools, orphanages, job training and life skills programs, as well as environmental conservation and sustainability initiatives— from right here in the Upper Valley to as far away as Nepal and Zimbabwe.
And, if all that shopping makes you hungry, delicious soups and baked goods are for sale in the Christmas Market Café.
