Seattle certainly believes in cultural diversity for holiday markets! You can attend a market at a Buddhist Monastery to buy Tibetan crafts, visit a market with Native American goods, get into the Swedish trimmings for the Christmas season, or go traditional at the Victorian Market. If you are into indie crafts or high-end design items the Urban Craft Uprising markets have a wonderful mix from their artisan crafters, and if it’s the French Connection you want then Alliance Française de Seattle has items with that unique French flair.
About: Join the 100 pop-up vendors at this market to see what their creative talents have produced. Many of the goods are trendy and on point for the season. There will be street food and drink available to turn shopping into more of a social gathering, especially when teamed with the holiday entertainment provided.
When: December 7-8, Friday from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm and Saturday from 12:00 noon to 8:00pm.

About: Need a new wallet? A scented candle to make your home smell divine? Children’s clothing that is just that bit different to the usual store finds? Then head down to browse through the work of 150 artisan vendors who will have everything from furniture to jewellery, clothing, art, design, and more.
When: December 1-2 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
