The Old Bakery Beer Company hosts the annual Alton Christmas Market

ALTON, Illinois — The Old Bakery Beer Company is hosting its fourth Christmas Market to help you get the gifts you need for your loved ones.

Located in historic downtown Alton, the company is home to more than 15 local vendors from the greater St. Louis area.

“We also have a farmer here so you can stock up on winter produce,” said Lauren Pattan, owner of Old Bakery Beer. “And we have all kinds of goodies. We have sweet treats for the holidays, pottery, a couple of book authors, just a huge variety of things.”

Here you will meet the author of Your Edible Yard and farmer Crystal Stevens.

“We have about 10 hectares, we produce fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs with a focus on medicinal herbs. We grow our own tea blends, and then I make tinctures and herbal salts,” said Crystal Stevens, owner of Flourish Farmstead.

Stevens sells more of her family’s products.

“My daughter makes botanical face serums, lip balms, perfumes and earrings. And my son does fan art, he’s really in love with the Marvel Multiverse,” she said.

With every purchase you make from a seller, you’re entered into a raffle for a chance to win a basket full of local goodies.

After shopping, enjoy lunch of Old Bakery’s favorites, including cranberry salad and Korean barbecue nachos.

You can also meet Soccer Made in St. Louis author David Lange.

“What many people may not realize, it was a part of the structure of St. Louis up until the 1870s, with the first game being recorded in 1875,” Lange said. “And we’ve been making history ever since, to this day when the USA play the Netherlands with two players from St. Louis.”

The market is open until December 17th and takes place on the next two Saturdays from 11:30am to 3:30pm The Old Bakery Beer Company hosts the annual Alton Christmas Market
