About our markets

The Freewheeling Philosophy

Freewheeling Craft Markets, Ottawa Craft Markets, Shop local Ottawa


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

We believe in festive celebrations 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. Its not just about showing up + shopping... but an interactive experience where you feel like you a part of something.

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