Medicine Hat’s Moose and Squirrel Artisan Village is Alberta’s premier destination for original art, handcrafted items and unique imports. We are located in Downtown Medicine Hat and one block from Medicine Hat’s new Waterfront District, along the Saskatchewan River. The Moose and Squirrel showcases Artisans and Craftsmen from Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Montana and many more

Guests can enjoy the outdoor patio which features cooling misters to help cool down during Medicine Hat’s hot summers. We are a favorite local hangout for Hatter’s and ‘what to do’ for tourists. Located 5 minutes from Hwy 1, Moose and Squirrel Market is the perfect place for traveller’s to stop and stretch your legs.
