Vancity Makers | Summer Market


It’s one thing to go to a market, but it’s a whole other experience to go to them and meet the talented makers behind the brand. It’s kind of like visiting a friend and enjoying their company while shopping! That’s how I feel anyhow when I go to markets. I love to go to, meeting new people & the product they make in our beautiful area!

Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the ladies behind Vancity Makers! It’s so fun to hear how things bloom into something really wonderful that benefits so many locally! They have made this market more then just a market, they have made it into a support group for others who know exactly what it takes to be a maker. Be sure to grab some girls and make your way to the Albion Fairgrounds in Maple Ridge on August 19th & 20th for some local shopping!

Vancity Makers | How It Came To Be

“Tracy and I met last November at a Christmas pop up she was at. In such a short time we learned we had a lot in common and kept in touch after that. We discovered we were a part of some really great local groups that support fabulous women in business that it sparked an idea.
With Tracy having her soap business Scrubs and Bubbles and myself a home baker as The Cake Mama we wanted to focus on the handmade community in BC and try to create a place to connect and network with those who understand what it means to be a maker. We want to host social events to bring us all together and learn about topics that are relevant to starting a business, sustaining a business and taking it to the next level and thus Vancity Makers was born.
We are all about finding those “hidden gem” makers, learning about them and then turning around and sharing them with everyone to help them get more exposure. We love seeing businesses grow and be successful. With so many wonderful people in the handmade community we then thought why not create a market so that people can shop all these great vendors!
And so we present The SUMMER Market, over 50+ carefully curated vendors of handmade goods in wonderfully diverse categories. There will be local brands that everyone knows and loves and there will also be makers that are new to the scene. We hope that those who love to support the local handmade movement will come and enjoy our market!”
