About our markets

The Freewheeling Philosophy

Freewheeling Craft Markets, Ottawa Craft Markets, Shop local Ottawa


A Freewheeling Craft Market is a thoughtfully curated showcase of the very best emerging & established artisans from our local maker community. We pull together engaging event experiences, offering thematic retail pop-ups featuring the opportunity for consumers to meet the makers & learn the stories inspiring their goods.

It all culminates in a festive celebration of creativity, inspired surroundings, interactive experiences, maker goods, artisanal food & drinks, and good times.

We look for new ways to elevate the market experience, making it a lively atmosphere for consumers, and fostering the entrepreneurial spirit to inspire makers to push their creative boundaries.

Through cultivating community we are building an influential presence for the indie-craft movement in Ottawa.
