Introducing 10 new Fall Market artists
We aim to expand our vendor community of artists, makers and small shop owners by reserving a select number of market spaces for first-time vendors in all market categories. This fall, we are pleased to welcome over 30 vendors to Refresh Market from across the province. Here are a few of our September 13/14 fall market newcomers.
