The weather may be turning, but that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of fun to be had in Toronto. September means back to school and back to reality, but it definitely doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Our city is known for always having all sorts of activities and fun things to do and this month is no different. There are pop-ups and markets all over Toronto focused on things from female-led businesses and beauty, to wellness and antiques — there’s seriously something for everyone to enjoy!
Here’s our list of 6 Toronto pop-ups and markets to check out in September!
Located at Stackt Market, the Pretty Elevated by Irisa pop-up is the first of its kind as it’s not only a pop-up but a community space as well for female-led businesses. Irisa is a women’s cannabis brand that’s passionate about supporting women and building communities and that’s exactly what this unique pop-up is doing. For the 6 weeks that Pretty Elevated will be open (from August 16 until September 22), each entrepreneur will be given the opportunity to amplify their business for two weeks, rent free.
