For those lamenting the end of the farmerâ€™s 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 Wednesdayâ€™s market was relatively small, event organizer Sonia Christen says the event is still new and will hopefully grown as word spreads.
â€śRight now, we have a minimum of 12 vendors signed up to be here any Wednesday,â€ť says Christen. â€śWe would appreciate more though. Artists, crafters, produce, bakers, massage, farmers, you name it. We are trying to build on it.â€ť
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.
