Holiday markets

WoodGreen’s partnership with the Danforth East Community Association (DECA) is going downtown for the holiday season! Check out the #localTOmrkt market at Yonge and Gould and help support local Toronto vendors.

Organizers have been working since October to turn this dream into reality. To provide more opportunities for micro-entrepreneurs, Adhoc has transformed an empty lot at Yonge and Gould into a marketplace. The holiday market’s focus provides small scale, local vendors, affordable access to a high-foot traffic area during the busy holiday shopping period.

WoodGreen also recruited other community agency program participants to join in, in some cases, offering access to artists who otherwise might not be able to afford it. A former participant of the Newcomer Women’s Services, Green Entrepreneur Program, Enca Designs will be selling hand-made bags, some of which are made from upcycled leather goods at the downtown holiday market Dec 10 & 11. In addition, former Pop-Up Shop, Asiri’s Treasures (until Dec 28) and ongoing Pop-up Project volunteers, Queenie’s Cards (Dec 13 & 14) and Little Kitchen Gourmet (Dec 20 & 21)are also participating in the market. WoodGreen is excited to be supporting this market, providing opportunities to showcase a range of products to the general public, and generating important feedback on the vendor’s market experience.

Access to the market is free and market hours are noon – 9pm daily through to December 28th, 2014.

The DECA-WoodGreen Pop-up Project is funded by the Metcalf Foundation and continues to work with a number of local organizations this holiday season.

Stay Informed.
