Cedar Springs Waldorf School and the Placerville Natural Food Co-op are co-sponsoring a Holiday Market on Saturday, Nov. 30 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Placerville Shakespeare Club, 2940 Bedford Ave. in Placerville.

The market is the perfect place to find gifts crafted by more than 40 vendors keeping shopping dollars in El Dorado County.

A beautiful selection of items handmade by local artists and crafts people will be available such as original jewelry, clothing, home décor, handwork (needle, felt, crochet and knit items), one of a kind toys and dolls, natural body and home products (herbal soaps and beeswax candles), books and seasonal delights.

Additionally fair trade products and locally roasted coffee, salsa, organic cookies and olive oil will be available throughout the market.

Melisa Clark, general manager of the Placerville Co-op added, “I do all of my holiday shopping at the Holiday Market. I get to support local crafters, give unique handmade gifts to everyone on my list, and I can walk to the venue so I feel great about my impact on the environment.”

Organizers point out that the Placerville Shakespeare Club is a great location for the Holiday Market due to the central location and the availability of parking.

The co-op will serve delicious breakfast burritos, muffins, coffee, chia and hot chocolate from 8-10:30 a.m. Lunch offerings will be sandwiches, wraps, salads, turkey and three bean chili, vegetarian curried rice soup, sodas, waters, bottled teas, chips, snacks or gluten-free cookies.

Cedar Springs parent and Global Good Fair Trade owner Laurie Dahl said, “We are thrilled to partner with the Placerville Co-op for a second year and bring the market indoors this year at the Shakespeare Club. There is such a wonderful array of products from many talented artists in our local community. ”

Cedar Springs upper grade students and parents will be selling beautiful items to help raise funds for field trips and the school overall. Student paintings, ceramics, photography, knitted items, Waldorf-friendly supplies and toys and more will be available at the market this year.

“Art and handcrafts are an important part of Waldorf education,” explained Lynn Morgan, Ed.D, and director of community development at Cedar Springs. “There will be some beautiful work by our students for sale and on display at this year’s market as well as wholesome, quality-made items that will make excellent gifts for the holidays.”

Supporting handmade is truly the spirit of gift giving. The economic benefits of supporting independent artists and makers are obvious to the local economy and enriching the whole community. Live, learn, play and shop local according to event organizers.
