Get Ready for Farmers, Pop-up, and Craft Markets


Farmers markets, craft markets and pop-up markets have become a staple in many communities across BC. More and more consumers want to support unique, locally-based products and vendors. Have you tried your hand at being a vendor? Do you want to start selling at a community-based market?

This panel-format seminar brings together organizers and experienced vendors from a range of community-based markets to share proven ideas and successful ways of “working the event.”

This seminar will help you:

  • bring your idea further to becoming “market ready”
  • identify the kinds of markets best suited for your goods
  • become aware of costs, rules and regulations for your type of product
  • navigate the (juried) application process to becoming a vendor
  • understand what successful vendors do in terms of packaging, selling in person, identifying audiences and how to “keep things fresh”

Note: this session is a new edition with a fresh slate of panelists, so you’re welcome to join us again if you attended before.

Facilitated By: Tamara Komuniecki (Delish General Store), alongside a panel of industry insiders from various farmers, pop-up, and craft markets including Christina Platt (Bamboletta Dolls), Jenny Lo (Oollo Tea), Karen Curtis (Kics Lemonade), Roberta LaQuaglia (Vancouver Farmers Markets) and more.

This seminar is hosted at Small Business BC in Vancouver and delivered to other locations via live webinar. Please note: all webinar participants will also receive access to a recording for seven days after the live session.
