Come meet and support your local makers, bakers and growers – hear their stories and learn first-hand how and why they do what they do. Enter a wonderland of treasures, with vendors offering everything from wood-work to jewelry, fine arts, candles, clothing, knits, foods, baked goods and so much more!


You will recognize many of your favourite James Bay Community Market vendors in addition to many new-to-you vendors showcasing their work at the Dickens Fair for the first time. The variety and quality will impress even the most discerning shoppers.
