Holiday Market in Edmonds
The holiday season is moving into full swing in Edmonds with what is being billed as the “larger-than-ever” Holiday Market.
More than 50 vendors are set to gather for the market, which runs for six Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the heart of downtown on Fifth Avenue North in front of City Hall. The events begin Saturday and continue Nov. 16 and 23, and Dec. 7, 14 and 21.
“We’re thrilled to bring back this popular holiday market to Downtown Edmonds with an ever-greater array of vendors this year,” said Patrick Doherty, economic development director for the city.
Beyond the market, more holiday cheer is expected in Edmonds: the annual tree lighting on Nov. 30, the downtown holiday trolley on Saturdays in December, Christmas ships, movies, street music and decorations.

Ribbon cutting to celebrate life of Edmonds woman
A new interpretive panel near downtown Edmonds will celebrate the life of Edmonds’ Missouri Hanna, a newspaper publisher and champion of women’s suffrage.
Hanna, who’s called the “Mother of Journalism” in an event announcement, became Washington’s first woman newspaper publisher when she purchased the Edmonds Review in 1905.
She also founded “Votes for Women,” a monthly Northwest suffrage newsletter.
A ribbon cutting will take place Friday, just before the 2020 Suffrage Centennial. Speakers will include Snohomish League of Women Voters President Vicki Roberts-Gassler, project lead Rita Ireland, and Teresa Wippel, publisher of My Edmonds News, Lynnwood Today, and current Edmonds Citizen of the Year.
The event will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at the corner of Sunset Avenue and Caspers Street — near Hanna’s former home.
