Vendor selection emails will be sent out mid-March.
Our market is held in the Terwillegar Community Church in southwest Edmonton. The address is 1751 Towne Centre Boulevard, Edmonton AB
Our next market is our Spring Market on April 29, 2023.
Our mission is to curate a market that ensures success for every participant while showcasing a wide variety of work for our patrons. Our selection process limits vendors in each discipline and medium, allowing us to feature a great diversity of handmade items.
The Hand2Hand partners notify successful vendors via email.
Yes! Participation in a past market does not guarantee a spot in future markets. Each market is curated to allow for a balanced mix of returning and new artisans for the best experience for both patrons and vendors.
Yes! Our waitlist application opens after final vendor selection and remains open until the day before the market. If a spot opens up, the Hand2Hand partners will review the waitlist. If there is an application that works with the current market mix, the applicant will be contacted directly.
The market has three space options:
8x5 foot spot $100
10x5 foot spot $120
10x10 foot spot (no table) $160
All spots come with a table & 2 chairs. Free wifi is available at the venue. After load-in, vendors have dedicated parking spots at the high school adjacent to the venue.
Great question! We are a registered non-profit; our partners do not take any pay for organizing the event. All fees go towards putting on the market - the rental of the space, marketing materials and advertising, website maintenance and other administrative costs involved in bringing our market to life for our patrons and artisans.
Each artist is responsible for carrying their own liability and/or property insurance for the market. Affordable, single day event insurance is available from several different companies. (Duuo, PAL)
Hand2Hand is known for premium artisanal goods. We expect our artists and artisans to provide well-merchandised displays with table linens to the floor, clear pricing, and overstock hidden away. If you would like some guidance with this, we are happy to provide tips! (You will be asked to provide a photo of your table or booth setup in your application.)
All of this information can be found on the COVID-19 tab on the website.
Our market is a popular one-day event held two times a year - spring and winter. A multi-day market is not under consideration; logistics and costs are a factor. We love our venue, and a multi-day market could require a venue change, additional expenses, and/or significantly higher market fees for our artists.
Easy! There is a sign-up link at the bottom of the vendor application page.
