2022 Coast Salish Pop-Up Winter Market Recap

From December 10th to January 8th, the Nature House held our very first winter pop-up market! Twinkling lights hung from branches of Oregon grape and Nootka rose decorate the inside of the Nature House. Trolleys and planters filled with plants from the Coast Salish Plant Nursery spruce up the entrance, a mixture of Salal, Fir, Oregon Grape, Spruce, and Kinnickinnick.

As visitors entered, they were welcomed with festive music as it played through the speakers, and the smell of hot cider and festive food filled the air.

This weekend winter market featured wild bird and Coast Salish artworks. A variety of items were available for sale, from T-shirts with designs by Jordan Gallie (TWN) and Ocean Hyland (TWN). Notebooks screen printed by hand, by Megan Curren. Cedar Charcuterie Boards with Jordan Gallie’s Osprey design, created in collaboration with Lifespace Gardens. Candles made with essential oils of cedar and fir trees that can be found on-site at Maplewood Flats.

Osprey Tea Blend was made in collaboration with Raven and Hummingbird Co,

Our 5th Annual Members’ Photography exhibit was also on display during the market. Visitors were able to view the beautiful photographs of plants, birds and animals taken by members at Maplewood Flats.

We are grateful to everyone who came down to support our pop-up market. Each purchase made helps support our conservation and reconciliation efforts!
