It's not as big as the Edmonds Holiday Market on Fifth Avenue North, but Edmonds Rotary's inaugural Perrinville Holiday Market has numerous items to consider as gifts or stocking stuffers.

It continues on two more Sundays, Dec. 13 and Dec. 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

At Viv Chargualaf's booth in Perrinville, you can pick up face masks for half price. She attends markets throughout the area, including the garden and summer markets in Edmonds. "This is my passion," she said.

The club has partnered with the Floretum Garden Club, which is making wreaths and swags for the Rotary booth.

Sales are going great, said Rotary President-elect Maggie Peterson.

"This was born out of a desperation to fundraise enough to keep our financial commitments during these extremely difficult times," she said. "(Rotary member) David Kaufer was able to do well with his virtual Oktoberfest this year. Aside from that, this is the only other fundraiser we've done.

"The garden club usually does their own wreath sale, but had to cancel this year. So, the partnership has been great for both clubs."

Will there be another holiday market in Perrinville next year?

"It's all up in the air now," Peterson said. "We're all just pivoting to get through this year."

All proceeds from holiday market sales will help fund the programs that Edmonds Rotary has supported for many years.
