Meet the Gingerbread Market Vendors

Sienna - Meet the Gingerbread Market Vendors

October 16, 2023

The best shopping day of the year is right around the corner. We’re talking about our annual Gingerbread Market, of course! It returns to the Sawmill Lake Club, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, with more food, more fun and more vendors.

Admission to the market is at least one non-perishable donation for the Second Mile Mission Center. Tequila with Friends and Austin East Ciders will provide shoppers 21 and older with a complimentary beverage for a canned food donation. Yancey’s Food Kitchen and Rob’s Mini Donuts will be on hand serving up a full menu of brunch items. A 2-piece jazz duo will provide holiday tunes.

Now in its 18th year, the market attracts artisans, crafters and small businesses selling everything from jewelry and clothing to dog treats and household décor. Many of our vendors return year after year, and attendees look forward to seeing them.

Liz Collins, owner of Liz Silk Creations, started wowing customers with her handcrafted wreaths and centerpieces at our very first market. Debra Williams of Amy’s Crafts and Jewelry has been selling her jams, knitted hats, holiday decorations and more for 10 years.

Nicole Calabrese, owner of Nik Calabrese’s Wrap Bracelets set up her first booth in 2015.

“I love this market,” Calabrese said. “It was my very first market in 2015 and now, eight years later, I still look forward to this time of year! I love seeing repeat customers every year.”

Alesha Parks, owner of Inside the Looking Glass has been selling her unique fused designs for more than five years. She loves how well organized the market is.

Vendors that have been with us from one to four years include Donna Williams, Tiffany’s Designer Nails, Brazos River Provisions Company, CT Designs, Tonya Duncan Ellis Books, It’s Simple Artisan Soaps, Veronica Allen, Koala’s Treehouse, 4 Paws Gourmet Dog Treats and Best Day Ever Ears Co.

We are always happy to welcome new vendors. This year, we know you will fall in love with Bruce’s Bakery, Lemonade SiPS, Jentier Jewelry and Lowland Oddity. And these are just some of the wonderful vendors who will be at Gingerbread Market! A full list can be found here.

Of course, we wouldn’t be able to host the Gingerbread Market without support from our sponsors, including Sienna, Hyundai Genesis of Southwest Houston, Tequila with Friends, Austin Eastciders, David Weekly Homes, Newmark Homes, J. Patrick Homes, Harvest Market and Sara B. Goldstein, DO.

Grab a shopping buddy or two and come out to meet and support our vendors at the Gingerbread Market!
