Our Community Markets have finished for the 2021 summer season. Thank you to everyone who visited and took part in this year’s markets!
We had an overwhelming response to our vendor call out for the 2021 Transcona BIZ
Community Markets. The 2021 line up included some of your all-time favorites as well as new vendors to discover! Markets were held every Thursday between July 8th – August 19th from 10.30 am – 2.30 pm. We also had fun hosting Night Markets on Wednesday July 14th, and Wednesday August 11th from 5.00 pm – 8.00 pm.
There were additional COVID-19 protocols and safety measures in place to help keep our community healthy. This included having dedicated entry and exit points, one-directional foot traffic, having hand sanitizer and masks available, maintaining social distancing, and encouraging visitors to check out the vendor list online beforehand to research what to buy ahead of time. In an attempt to increase our available market space, the 2021 Community Markets were held at 131 Victoria Avenue West in the parking lot of the Transcona Christian Reformed Church, who graciously agreed to host us!
