Join us next April for our first handmade market in the GTA.
Our events have made an explosive impact over the last 9 years in Durham Region. We can`t wait to bring local love into the city of Toronto!! When you visit our markets  you aren`t just shopping, you`re growing your local economy – the money you spend stays in your city and helps support libraries, schools parks & so much more!

Not your gramma’s bazaar
Not mass produced
Not a mall

Downsview Event Centre boasts over 20,000 sq feet of space for us to host a large, curated handmade market highlighting both established and emerging handmade and design artisans in the fields of jewelry, food, accessories, fashion, art, home and lifestyle goods and services.

With this being a handmade market, spaces are limited for ‘like’ businesses as some categories are more
saturated than others. We want to offer our shoppers a wide range of products/services from your awesome
local businesses! Your application will be reviewed by our panel – this way, we can ensure that our customers
are exposed to a large variety of products all under one roof. The panel will review all applications, based on
quality of work, social media presence and market suitability.

All applicants selected by our panel for this event will be notified by January 10th 2020.
