Get a headstart on your holiday shopping at the Northern Virginia Christmas Market, a bazaar packed with a huge variety of one-of-a-kind gifts. That’s all thanks to the 250-plus artisans who come together for the massive market every year. They hail from more than 20 different states and showcase a huge array of handmade goods that are perfect for gifting.
Come to the Dulles Expo Center on November 8th, 9th, or 10th to check out what they’re selling this year. You’ll find everything from handcrafted jewelry and pottery to stained glass masterpieces, beautiful works of fiber art, and artful photos. You can also grab specialty foods and put together gift baskets, thanks to the Taste of the Holidays culinary vendors, and participate in the annual Capital Area Food Bank’s food drive by donating a canned good. Admission is $8, unless you bring along a can of non-perishable food to donate, in which case it’s $7.50.
