Maker & Collector market, VENDOR QUEENS, has found its inaugural home and is currently seeking passionate vendors and artistic collaborators to join us in creating a vibrant new marketplace in the heart of Toronto’s art district, at 1093 Queen Street West @ Dovercourt Road.
Open to the public every Saturday & Sunday from 10AM to 7PM, and for two special holiday night markets (Th. DEC. 12th/BOXING DAY), VENDOR QUEENS provides artists, vintage collectors, upcyclers and artisanal food & drink vendors a space to nest and expand through a supportive network of daring Toronto (and area) entrepreneurs.
Vendors renting space for consecutive weekends have the opportunity to leave their displays up during the week at no extra charge. With this structure, vendors can to creatively invest in their displays, improving them each week during weekday re-stocking & display hours.
We are looking for members who are talented at what they do, and who convey a sense of pride and ownership for their space and for the artistic exchanges with customers they encourage. All vendors (regular or rotating) are encouraged to participate in the preparation of the market’s grand opening day and launch party Dec. 16th.
We welcome vendors, artists & performers who are interested in blurring the lines that have been drawn between craft and art, performance & experience.
Rent is $115 each market day for regular (8x8 wall or 6x6 corner spaces), or $100 when four consecutive days are booked and paid for in advance. A six-foot table space (without storage) is $100 per day, or $90 for any four days confirmed in advance. Weekday workshop space for participitory vendors may also be available (with rent still only applying on selling days).
Please email email@example.com

theatrical, poetic or dance-based performance-piece (ON THE THEME OF
QUEENLINESS) for our launch party and night-market on November 16th. (DJs interested in mixing baroque music with the band QUEEN, are also encouraged to apply).
