December 10 - 12
Salem and the mid-Willamette Valley are home to a thriving community of artists—and, every winter, that creative group comes together for the Salem Holiday Market.
The annual market—happening Dec. 10-12, 2021, at the Oregon State Fair & Expo Center in Salem—brings together more than 250 vendors selling high-quality, handmade items for everyone on your list (even your pets!). This year, visitors will find creative crochet items, small-batch pastries, dog treats, paintings, handcrafted jewelry, metalwork, artisan chocolates, and much more.
Other attractions include door prizes, children’s activities, a gingerbread house contest, a tree-decorating contest, and even interactive robotics activities (presented by the robotics program at Salem’s Chemeketa Community College).
