Pop-up market offers vendors a place to sell their wares this winter


LITTLE CURRENT – The Little Current United Church will host its second official pop-up market this Saturday, March 7 in the hall and vendors are encouraged to get a table at this wintertime event.

The brainchild of Karen Allard and Betty Edwards, the duo decided that, following the annual Christmas markets found Island-wide in November and December, there was decidedly little during the winter months to allow those vendors to market their wares, and so the pop-up market was born.

The Little Current United Church’s successful Friday open mic nights were also created with the idea of carrying a popular outdoor pastime on by bringing George Williamson and friends—who appear during the summer months at Soldier Park in downtown Little Current—inside during the fall and winter.

The pop-up market, Ms. Allard explained, will end come May and allow the Little Current Farmers’ Market to take over its natural role as the vendors’ spot of choice.

So far there are 15 vendors lined up for this Saturday, but there is room for 22 tables within the church hall. Tables are just $10 and can be booked by phoning Ms. Allard at 705-272-8688.

The market will be held this Saturday at the Little Current United Church on Robinson Street from 10 am to 3 pm.
