The Wampum Learning Lodge is hosting its second annual Indigenous Winter Market that features over 30 Indigenous art, craft and food vendors this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m..

Attendees can purchase a wide range of products, including honey, beeswax products, beadwork, soaps, body washes, artwork and more.
