It isn't the holidays yet until the holiday markets swing open their doors. As the season draws closer, two such markets are itching to hang up their wreaths. The Handmade Idaho Holiday Market and Wintry Market have their fingers on the pulse of Boise for holiday gifts, crafts and more. With more than 50 vendors at each event, there will be huge selections of holiday goodies. Both markets are free to get into, with Handmade Idaho Holiday Market offering goodies to the first 50 people who arrive. Banana Ink, Grey Jays and The Garden City Projects are just some of the local vendors that will be at either of the holiday markets.
