Artisan Market on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Red Deer museum. (There’s a preview for museum members on Friday from 5 to 9 p.m. )

Locally made ceramics and paintings will also be sold by members of the Red Deer Pottery Club and Red Deer Art Club at the Christmas Show and Sale, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the front lobby of the Red Deer Recreation Centre.

The Laft Hus will hold its annual Craft and Bake Sale of Scandinavian goods and delicacies on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

And the Golden Circle’s Annual Craft and Bake Sale will run Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the seniors’ facility next to the museum.
