The annual Swope Health Holiday Mart is happening a little earlier this year to help you prepare for the holiday season!
Join us from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15 at Swope Health’s Building C Activity Room, 3801 Blue Parkway, Kansas City, MO.
The event is free and open to all.
The mart is filled with local vendors who offer a wide variety of gifts. You’ll find jewelry, clothing, household décor and supplies, baked goods, cosmetics, skin and beauty products, and handbags and more. You can even buy art products produced in the arts program of the Community Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program’s adult day program.
This year, the arts program will offer an array of framed abstract oil paintings on canvas, one-of-a-kind handmade coasters, baskets, pictures and posters, inspirational items and much more, said Sonya Bolden-Oakley, Supervisor in the day program.
And if you’d like to wrap your shopping around lunch, that’s available too. The $5 menu includes hot dogs and nachos, with or without chili, plus snacks and soft drinks.
Proceeds from the Holiday Mart go to support day program activities, including field trips and supplies for cooking, gardening and art programs. Last year’s event raised about $1,000 and helped provide a holiday luncheon and $5 gift cards for day program participants.
Would you like to join in the event?
Vendors pay $35 for their spot at the Mart. For more information, contact Sonya at 816-599-5263 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at the Holiday Mart!

Hand-painted furniture, including these chairs decorated in the arts day program, were popular at the 2018 Holiday Mart.
For the 2019 Holiday Mart, the arts day program is preparing folk art, baskets, pictures, posters, canvases and coasters – and that’s just a sample!
