The High River Artisans Market will reopen in the summer of 2015 on Saturday June 13th for its second season. It will run each Saturday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm through to August 29th, offering a variety of local hand-made arts and crafts, produce, jewellery and photography. Come and support our local economy by shopping local. We require that 80% of each vendor’s wares are made locally to be sold at the market. The Artisans Market is a fun way to spend the day outside with friends and family.
The Market first began when Enactus Mount Royal, a University team, recognized that artists were suffering after the June 2013 floods due to a decrease in spending on non-essential goods. The goal was to find a way to help existing local businesses and encourage small businesses to get out and reach a larger market; thus the idea for the Artisans Market came about.
The Market features local and surrounding area artists and makers, food producers, and food trucks, along with live music and activities for children.
