Blooming Local Spring Craft Market 2017
Blooming Local marked our 7th market at Makerspace North. We wanted it to be all about fresh, spring, the excitement + possibility of the season ahead after a long, cold, dark winter that had us all pining for sunny days.
This was by far our biggest pool of applicants to curate from yet. We were absolutely blown away that so many incredibly talented vendors wanted to join our community. In the end we offered up a lineup of craft makers that would be the envy of any market organizer. Almost half of our lineup was new to our community. Some emerging makers, fresh to the scene. Some established that had never worked with us before.
On market day, hundreds of you came out to shop and explore local. The smell of savoury thai wafted through the warehouse. Fur babies came in and posed at our Photo Opp in cola with Paw Parade. The flower bomb wall had everyone swooning over lush spring blooms.
We left this market more inspired than ever that the community we are building is bar-none such a positive experience for shoppers, vendors, and myself.
