Try Holiday Shopping In A Medieval Holiday Market

In the Village of Fairhaven shop an extensive array of craft vendors offering home décor, jewelry, clothing of renaissance and medieval fashion, blown and torched glass, handmade art and pottery. Think of Fairhaven as a medieval mall. There are also activities for children of all ages including people-powered amusement rides and countryside faire games such as the castle climbing wall, archery and tomato tossing at a fool.

Throughout Fairhaven, purveyors offer an endless feast of bread bowl stews, premium meats on sticks, sweet treats and confections and a favorite of all renaissance wanderers: a bag of cinnamon-roasted almonds! Festival pubs offer a variety of Pepsi products, craft beer, wine, champagne, ale, honey mead, lemonade, and Medieval Margaritas to compliment the day-long feast of hearty foods fit for royalty!

The final weekend presents an opportunity to save big on unique holiday gifts at the Festival’s artisan marketplace with many of the craft shops offering discount pricing on a diverse selection of handmade gift items. The marketplace features pottery, jewelry, perfume, glass-blown ornaments, smoking ceramic dragons, bath & body products, medieval costumes, hand-dipped and carved candles, unique musical instruments, children’s toys, a full spectrum of clothing, and much more.

Don’t miss your last chance of the year to enjoy your best shopping day out in history. Huzzah!
