New Artisans Market arrives on Mountain in time for holidays posted on 11/01/2018

Inspired by his brother’s artwork, Warren Bates made a few prints and was able to display them at the store at the Mt. Hood Village RV Resort. And based on the reaction to them, Bates took things a step further this summer by helping to organize six shows at the resort, featuring various types of arts and crafts.

Bates noted that despite no advertising for the shows, they were successful and everyone was able to sell a few things. Next month, the show will take another leap forward with the Mt. Hood Village Holiday Artisan Market, a larger gathering of creative artists and vendors, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1 and 2-6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, at the RV Resort, 65000 Hwy. 26 in Welches.

“It almost feels like a Saturday market,” Bates said of the summer’s offerings. “There’s a lot of artists up here on the mountain.”

The holiday market will include arts and crafts such as jewelry, pottery, fine art, essential oils, soap and more, offering a chance for area residents to get an early start to their holiday shopping, while also showcasing the creativity of the artists on the mountain.

Bates also has plans to bring back the summer market next year, expanding to eight dates while keeping costs down for vendors and bringing more local artists on board.

If you are an artist or vendor that wants to participate in the Mt. Hood Village Holiday Artisan Market please contact Warren Bates at 503-867-0677 or email bateswarren1@gmail.com, or email mounthoodvillage@equitylifestyle.com.
