It’s almost time to start Christmas shopping, but this year you want to do it differently.

For starters, you want unique items that you can’t find anywhere else. You’d prefer that they’re local for the purpose of supporting local artisans. Not only this, but you’d like to do your shopping in a community-minded setting.

The idea might sound a little far-fetched but it isn’t anymore, thanks to the upcoming Adera Holiday Market at South Ridge Club. While you’re there to shop, you’ll also get a look at South Surrey’s newest town home community that’s perfect for families and active adults.

Taking place at the South Ridge Club gymnasium on November 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., entrance to the event will be free and by donation. All you have to do is bring this flyer with you.

For one day only, locals will connect with each other to create a marketplace where you can meet local artisans, buy their items, and talk about their creative processes. This is also an ideal location to take your children for the afternoon.
