Behind the Scenes
Who are we?
Just two regular women working in our community. We are moms, wives, business owners, and friends to many in our home town of Okotoks. We are busy, but what fuels our passion is the strong desire to see local makers, creators and curators showcased in our community in a fun & vibrant setting.
Yes MarketSquare is a part time endeavor for both of us. And yes, a strong focus of each of our events is to raise funds for the Okotoks Food Bank. Our goal for 2017 is to raise $50,000! Why do we do MarketSquare beside our businesses? It's for fun ... and for a great cause.
