Beehives at St. David’s Jubilee Community Garden were abuzz all summer-long with honey bees producing the sweet viscous food substance that adds jars of parish-honey to Christmas Craft Fair edibles for sale November 24.    

The event kicks off at 10am with a Keen Footwear Sample Sale that launches the Fair’s European-style Christkindlemarkt. The footwear sale is held semi-annually in May and November at St. David’s Anglican Church in Tsawwassen. This year-end sale of Keen’s winter lines, combined with parish craft stalls’ gallimaufry of goods, promises fair-goers a rewarding visit.

Add Kartoffelsalat (German warm potato salad) and Bratwurst sausage at lunch in St. David’s Café, and visualize a centuries-old Christkindlemarkt in another time and place.

The parish kitchen, renamed St David’s Café for the day, will be open for morning coffee, tea and German stollen, snacks and lunch. Christmas Craft Fair hours are 10am to 2pm in the cul-de-sac of 51A Street.
