Edmonds’ first Holiday Market opened bright and early Saturday morning to blue skies and sunshine. Held in the parking area next to City Hall and organized by the City’s Department of Economic Development, the market offered a festive mix of music, food and crafts, with many familiar faces from the Spring and Summer markets.

The first Edmonds Holiday Market drew plenty of guests, and by all measures is off to a rousing start.

“We hope to offer a little something for every shopper in downtown Edmonds this holiday season,” says City of Edmonds Economic Development Director Patrick Doherty. “We hope the Holiday Market will be the perfect complement to all the fantastic stores, restaurants and events that make downtown Edmonds such a cherished and festive holiday tradition.”

Finally able to enjoy an Edmonds Market as visitors, Museum market organizers Mike and Margaret Wilcox were all smiles as they're joined by Janice Carr and Bruce the Hot Dog guy. Bruce's hot dog cart, Dog Day Afternoon, never misses an Edmonds market.
