Want an opportunity to display and sell your handmade and/or locally designed goods in a retail environment? With a Maker's Market membership, local artisans can rent retail space for 4 weeks at a time and earn 100% of their sales!
We offer membership and retail space to many different types of artisans. All artists, designers, and makers are welcome to apply!
Our store is open 7 days a week, and anyone visiting Toronto has the opportunity to come in and shop for your products. We are located at 3069 Dundas St. West, in Toronto's friendly and vibrant Junction neighbourhood. Easily accessible by TTC bus and surrounded by local shops, restaurants, and cafes, with lots of foot traffic.
We rent spaces in our store for 4 weeks at a time to makers, with retail spaces starting at $25 + HST. Each artisan receives their own area to decorate and showcase their work. Retail vendors can choose from a variety of display spaces. Our retail staff handles all sales for you and we take no commission!
Our members are welcome to stay renting their space for as long as they like. We would love for you to make Maker's Market the home for your brand! If you choose to leave, we only require 3 weeks notice before your next membership payment due date.
