Don’t miss this holiday market with its distinctly international atmosphere! Sample crêpes, pastries, wine, and gourmet cheeses while shopping for unique and special gifts at the French American International School’s Holiday Market, on Saturday, December 8 from 9 am-4 pm. This market is one of the most anticipated holiday venues in the Portland area, known for the breadth and quality of vendors and for its spirited atmosphere.

Over 45 local vendors will be selling distinctive items such as handmade hats and handbags, soy candles, bamboo clothing, French linens, bonsai, soaps, brightly colored children’s ponchos, jewelry, ceramics, and crafts. Sample gourmet cheeses or enjoy a luscious pastry, tart or baguette sandwich at the Parisian Café, sponsored by the Alliance Française. A local wine specialist will offer a selection of wines perfect for serving and giving this season. There will be entertainment throughout the day, provided by musicians, student choral groups, and other performers.

The Holiday Market is a special project of the FAIS Parent Liaison Committee. Past year’s proceeds have been used for the purchase of major equipment, for the maintenance and signage of the School’s nature trail, for sporting equipment, and to fund professional development for staff members.

FAIS Campus, 8500 NW Johnson Street, free parking and admission.

Oak Hills Holiday Bazaar

The Oak Hills Holiday Bazaar will take place from 10 am-5 pm, Friday, November 30 and Saturday, December 1. As in years past, many of the vendors are Oak Hills residents and the rest are all from the Portland area, making this a perfect opportunity to “shop local” and support local crafters and artists. Vendors who wish to sell wares should contact event organizer Ruth McArthur at 503-645-3022 or for information and an application form—hurry because there are just a few tables left.
