For those lamenting the end of the farmerâs market season, do not despair. The North Country Artisansâ Market (NCAM) is picking up where the Northeast Washington and Colville Farmersâ Markets left off. Vendors, merchants and artisans will be plying their wares inside the November Coalition at 282 West Astor Avenue, Colville every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Dec. 21.
Though last Wednesdayâs market was relatively small, event organizer Sonia Christen says the event is still new and will hopefully grown as word spreads.
âRight now, we have a minimum of 12 vendors signed up to be here any Wednesday,â says Christen. âWe would appreciate more though. Artists, crafters, produce, bakers, massage, farmers, you name it. We are trying to build on it.â
Booth space is $5, plus 10 percent of sales. The money goes toward the expense of maintaining and operating the building during the winter months.
For more information about renting a space, call Christen at 675-2085 or Draney at 675-0084.
