EVENTS - MarketSquare now works with 800+ artists, artisans and small businesses. In 2017, MarketSquare's focus has shifted to indoor events exclusively. True to it's original vision set at MarketSquare's inception seven years ago, it continues to focus on helping raise funds for the Okotoks Food Bank (our goal is $50,000 for 2017).
ONLINE - MarketSquare now also offers an extensive online platform with a directory and detailed profile, information, photo galleries, and website links to local artisans and boutique small businesses. The online directory makes it simple to connect with vendors before as well as after events. And, we're super excited about the latest addition to MarketSquare's online platform, which are the interview-style articles found on our home page. These articles tell the stories of our local artisans and bring continuous attention to them throughout the year!
Our passion is local, handmade & unique small businesses ... our essence is to showcase the BEST of our region's LOCAL MAKERS & SHAKERS!
