We are looking for Manitoba-based makers, where the product is the original concepts of the Artist and Artisan. We love to see creative entrepreneurs who champion and collaborate with others in the maker community. We encourage items made via local and/or ethical manufacturing, as long as the idea is the vendor’s original concept.
Yes. We operate by Manitoba Health guidelines. A Public Health Inspector reviews all food vendors for approval. If you are not approved by the food inspector, we will not be able to have you at the market. Open communication with the inspector is highly recommended. The Market Guidelines (application at the end) can be viewed here; which must be submitted directly to the Manitoba Public Health Inspector. If you plan on serving food samples, we must be notified before the market. Food Sampling Guidelines here.
Vendor applications will be open in April for a 2 week period. Three to four good quality photos of products & display if possible must accompany applications. For the 2022 market, the application window will be in March of 2022. No applications will be accepted after this time. Applicants will be notified by May whether or not they have been accepted. Follow us on Instagram & Facebook, or request to be added to our mailing list here for up-to-date info on the process.
Any applications for the current market that are not accepted will remain on a cancellation list until the event. All applicants are encouraged to re-apply annually during the determined application time, as the cancellation list is not kept on file past that date.

We offer a variety of booth sizes. Most booths are 10′ X 10′, but we will be offering a few new 5′ X 10′ & 7′ X7′ & 2′ X 8′ booth options. Costs range from $75-250/booth depending on the booth size and location. Corner booths have a premium cost.
We provide 2 chairs for each booth. There is a vendor lounge with complimentary tea & coffee, as well as to provide a quiet place to eat. Free WI-FI is available in the building. We promote our vendors on our social media platforms.
Tables are not provided with booth rental, but can be requested at a cost of $25 each. We encourage you to have your own unique displays like you are setting up your own boutique shop. This elevates the customer experience and will attract more traffic to the market to your booth.
Electricity is available for some booths on a first-come-first-served basis. This can be requested on the vendor application.
Set up occurs the day before the show, Friday from 11 am-8 pm, as well as the morning of the event. All booths MUST be complete by 9:00 am. Doors open at 7:30 am on Saturday morning for vendors & event crew only.
