When looking for the perfect gift for the holidays, the typical cookie-cutter, store-bought items don’t always do justice to the special person whom you are buying for. Thinking outside the box, and picking up a really unique gift goes much further in expressing your sentiments. Check out some of these great markets in Central Counties for a different shopping experience!


The Orangeville Town Hall will be abuzz this year with the return of the Orangeville Winter Market. Happening every other Saturday from November 7th to December 19th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, the market will be a great way to interact personally with local markers and farmers, and to pick up some unique goods.
Located on the main floor atrium and upper floor mezzanine, the market will feature farm raised meats, local produce, baked goods, and exclusive handcrafted arts and crafts items. Perhaps you can think about preparing a basket full of goodies for the special people on your list? The Orangeville Winter Market is one to visit!


Located in Five Points Mall, the Count Down to Christmas Community Craft and Gift Show is back, on November 7th and 8th. Their intention is to bring together members of the community who are makers of different crafts – pottery, jewelry, wooden items, knit wear, candles, floral arrangement and more.
Giving local craftspeople a chance to showcase their products, and giving you a larger variety of gifts to choose from sounds like a pretty great experience! Head down to Oshawa and find unique gifts for everyone on your list and support local makers!


November 12th to 15th is the exciting Beyond Craft Show and Sale in Whitchurch-Stouffville. Kicking off on November 12th with the opening night from 6:00-9:00pm and going through all day from 10:00am to 9:00pm from the 13th-15th, the craft show is one to see.
Located at 19 On the Park at the Latcham Gallery, admission for the event is by donation. Shop this curated market and discover your new favourite artisan and boutique makers in the area!
Your friends will be excited to receive their handpicked, personal gifts this year from markets in Central Counties. Be unique and try something new, while supporting local community members in their craft-making!
