One of British Columbia’s leading indie markets for handmade and locally designed goods is gearing up for its biggest two-day market of the year with expanded hours and exclusive early access before doors open to the public.

One hundred makers and pop-up shops will participate in the 12th Refresh Market on Friday, November 17th  and Saturday, November 18th.

Early bird and VIP access tickets are on sale now.

In addition to its vendor roster, the market will include expanded Friday night hours as well as ‘First Dibs’ early access when 50 guests will receive an intimate and exclusive first look at the market. This opportunity to beat the holiday market crowds also provides First Dibs guests with a welcome gift, and a craft cocktail mixed by award-winning mixologist and Gillespie’s Fine Spirits Ltd. distillery co-owner Kelly Ann Woods.

Since its launch in 2011, Refresh Market has remained one of the most anticipated “shop small” events for consumers, artists, and designers who flock there for its curated range of handmade items and creative appeal. The market receives more than 900 vendor applications annually.

Visitors can expect a highly edited mix of handmade and locally designed clothing, jewelry, ceramics, vintage, dry goods and more from new and established local brands and shops. Explore wares from homegrown favourites Billie’s Flower House, Nootka & Sea and Wild and Heart, as well as newcomers Boreal Folk Apothecary, AW by Andrea Wong, Melissa Araujo, Sarah Mulder Jewelry and Uniform Handmade. Of the 100 participating vendors, 30 per cent are new to the market.

Refresh Market will take place on Friday, November 17 from 4 to 10 p.m. and Saturday, November 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $5 at the door, $3 online and free for kids under 12. The first to arrive on both Friday and Saturday will receive one of 50 market swag bags
