Wintry Gives Back

The whole premise of Wintry Market is to give back to our local community by providing makers and artists with an affordable booth at a unique holiday market to sell their wares with no commission taken. Another piece, of course, is offering the Treasure Valley a great, fun shopping environment for two days in November free of admission.


This year, though, we wanted to give back even more to our community! We’ve invited the Hawthorne Harmonics, an elementary school choir of 3rd-6th graders from up on the Boise Bench, to come and sing some holiday carols for our crowd on Saturday morning, the 22nd around 10:15am. Supporting our public schools, especially their arts education, is pretty important to us.


We’re excited to promote even more local music, by offering paying gigs to a few more musical artists in town throughout the Market weekend. We’ve partnered with Go Listen Boise to do so, and are looking forward to talking more about music and artists and what Wintry Market does for the community next Thursday November 20th at 1pm on Mother’s Ruin on Radio Boise.


Another important addition this year are the Idaho Food Bank barrels you’ll find in the El Korah Shrine ballroom this year near the entrance. If you bring 2-3 cans or other nonperishable food items, you’ll get a 10% off coupon to use in any participating vendor booth purchase!

Cameras, Cupcakes and Cocktails, oh my!

We are so excited to announce that we’ve got a few local small businesses who specialize in making the best food and drink around joining us this year at Wintry Market! Joe 2 U will be brewing up some tasty warm beverages on the sidewalk in front of the El Korah Shrine both Saturday and Sunday. Once you’re had your fill of caffeine and are ready to move on to cocktails, we’re thrilled to tell you the Oasis Bar in the basement of the Shriners will be open for all your alcohol needs from 11am-5pm on Saturday November 22. Regardless your drink of choice, you’re gonna need some food to go with that. We are lucky to have Boise’s Bakery selling goodies inside the Ballroom and P. Diddy’s Wrap Wagon outside serving up savory lunch items and wraps.

Also, we’ve got all the makings for the cutest holiday card snapshots this year. Vintage tinsel backdrop? Check. Quirky Christmas themed props? Also check. You bring your iPhone and your friends. Located in the Band Room just right near the upstairs restrooms at the Shriners (where bricolage will be hosting the free kids’ craft workshops).
