The Citizen’s Collective Spring Market Is Bringing Ethically-Produced Hand-Made Goods To Toronto
Summer is almost here, which means very soon Toronto will be jam-packed with amazing events worth visiting with your family and friends. With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down what to do, but one event we recommend checking out is The Citizen’s Collective Spring Market.
The pop-up market will be open to the public for one day only, on June 9, at 9 Ossington (at the corner of Ossington and Queen W.) from 11 am to 7 pm. And the best part is that admission is free!
At the market, you’ll find a curated selection of hand-made and ethically produced decor, accessories, textiles, jewelry, plants, bath and beauty products and much much more. The Citizen Collective brings together dozens of talented artisans from the GTA and Montreal, who make their products locally. Some of the brands, including Nomadic Citizen, Jolie Laide, Palmetto Handmade and Bao Lyfe, work in collaboration with artisans in Mexico, Kenya, India, Morocco, and Ghana.
“The Citizens Collective was created to give creative female entrepreneurs, makers, designers, artists and overall boss babes an organized, curated platform and community to share their art, designs and ideas. We hope to facilitate new notions of consumption practices with a focus on well-made, well-designed products (with a story). Support the makers, not the malls,” said the organizers on The Citizen’s Collective’s Instagram.
