Event description

Description

This is not your average craft show! Part fundraiser and part community event, the Holiday Crafts & Food Marketplace provides immigrant and refugee artisans an opportunity to integrate with established artisans and start to build their business.

Support established and newcomer artisans by purchasing their products

FREE admission & door prizes!

  • 30+ vendors
  • Kids craft corner, sponsored by Jamie Dempster Team realtors
  • Silent auction table, with items donated by our generous sponsors
  • Raffle for even bigger prizes
  • 50/50 draw
  • Winter wonderland fun photos
  • Gift wrapping

Take home unique gifts for your loved ones – or yourself – at this festive shopping experience.

We are easily reached by transit (the 501 Queen streetcar goes by our door), or with a vehicle (a ~5 minute drive from DVP/Lakeshore, with free street parking nearby). The facility itself is wheelchair and stroller friendly, with an entrance ramp, elevator, and an accessible washroom.

Nestled between Leslieville and the Beaches neighbourhoods, we're the perfect home base for a leisurely day of exploring these popular neighbourhoods. We suggest you stop by before/after visiting the Leslieville Flea Market or the Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery District and discover our artisans before they become famous!

Proceeds from vendor fees, silent auction, raffle, 50/50 draw, and other event activities will go to the Mennonite New Life Centre of Toronto (MNLCT), a secular charitable organization serving immigrants and refugees across the GTA since 1983. We provide settlement information and referrals for immigration support and community connections; language services; community mental health services; employment, entrepreneurship, and career bridging supports; and counter-human trafficking counselling and case management.
