Holiday Hostess Gift List!

Traveling for the holidays or hosting? We have a variety of seasonal items, inspired art, jewelry, crafts, handcrafted cheeses, wines, jams and chocolates, and you're sure to find a perfect host or hostess gift!

Are you still looking for the perfect something to add to the table? Bring spicy Sage Cranberry Jam from Johnson Berry Farm or a bottle of Sweet Quince Chili Sauce from Hot Babe Hot Sauce for the hot sauce connoisseur in your group! Don’t pass by the Market without trying Garlic Cilantro sauce from Olympia Salsa or sampling a few of Mediterranean Flavor’s dozen hummus flavors.

We love a crunchy salad made with Skokomish Valley Farm greens and Piece by Piece watermelon radishes. Sprinkle Earthling Food Company’s toasted pumpkin seeds and Domina Dairy’s parmesan on top for a beautiful and simple side.

Are you on dessert duty? Or need a loaf of fresh baked bread to accompany your holiday meal? San Francisco Street Bakery, Blue Heron Bakery, Wagner’s Bakery, The Bread Peddler, and Baker Potter are to the rescue with a variety of fresh breads and baked goods! Don’t forget the wine! Wynoochee River Winery and Burnt Ridge Nursery have got you covered. Cheers!

Are you looking for the perfect serving dish to bring? Find woodcrafted charcuterie boards, bowls, and serving utensils from Wood Art by Howard and Wood Loved by Larry. Marion Pollman Clay Art also offers serving dishes and platters, custom welcome signs, holiday ornaments and more!

Need a gift for a favorite furry friend? Crossed Paws Bakery makes homemade, all natural dog treats. Or something for your host (or yourself) to unwind after a long day of cooking? Miller Lavender offers soothing eye pillows and sachets to unwind after holiday celebration!

So fresh and clean; give the gift of self-care! Bring some soap or body care for your host or hostess, or treat yourself after a long day of hosting! Riverdance Soapworks, Cascadia Terrior, Rainchild Apothecary, and Eufloria Botanicals are here to help!

And never underestimate the power of a nice apron or some seasonal oven mitts or coasters! Trnka creates upcycled aprons from earth-friendly fabrics and Secret Garden Quilts has seasonal (and washable!) over mitts and coasters.

Don't forget to say Thank You to your host or hostess! SNC Art & More, Kathleen Legault, Paper Matters and Accidently Lovely have cards for every occasion!

Can't decide what to bring? A Market Gift Certificate lets the recipient choose. And you can carry everything home in a reusable, fashionable Market tote! Tote bags as well as aprons are available for purchase at the Market Office.

Wishing you all a safe and happy start to the Holiday season!
