Vendor Call: Bloordale BIA

Hello Vendors,

The Bloordale BIA will be hosting it's fifth Parkette Markette of 2016 this October the 23rd! This market aims to showcase local artists, crafters, and independent businesses in a collective environment and a thriving neighbourhood.

The name of October's market is "The Spooky Season Markette." While vendors do not need their art or goods to have a Halloween focus, the Bloordale BIA will be donating pumpkins to residents as a fun way to be involved with the neighbourhood and to create foot traffic for the market. There will also be live music for its duration!

The market will take place in the Susan Tibaldi Parkette, which is just north of Brock and Bloor on October 23rd from 10am until 3pm.

The fee to participate is $40 and includes a 10'x10' space. If you require a tent, table, or chair, please let us know as soon as possible as there is a very limited supply. Once these are claimed, vendors must supply their own materials.

Tents or other materials cannot be pegged into the grass or tied to the trees. We want to respect our neighbourhood and our park! Be aware that the park does not have access to electricity. The market will be taking place rain or shine.

If you are a food vendor your information must be submitted to us at least a week in advance in order to be passed along to a city health inspector.

Payment can be sent electronically to The security password is bloordale. Please note that until payment is sent, your spot in the market will not be secured.

If you have any questions about this event please email

Once again this year, our show featured special sections for Fashion and Vintage sellers. This year we added a special Newbie Nook to highlight the work of new and upcoming Etsy sellers.

We hosted workshops on Photography, making Bath Bombs, Creative Holiday and Product Wrapping Design, Halloween Amigurumi, Beginner Hoop Embroidery, making Magnets & Hairclips and Wood Wobots!

We also had fun animating the space with suspended illustrations of crafty Canadian critters and paper lanters (with special thanks to Creative Bag).
