The Cultural Market (also referred to as “The Market” throughout) is held every Saturday from 9 am to 2 PM, located at 28 Saunders Street. (When a Statuary Holiday falls on Saturday, The Market is closed.)

- Artists, Designers, crafts
- Creative and Ethnic Cuisine
- Jams, Jellies, Preserves, Baked goods
- Fresh Local Produce
- Artist-made imported goods
- Street Artists and Performers
- Food Trucks
- And more
The Cultural Market Staff reserve the right to select, organize and determine the number of vendors for The Market, at their discretion, to allow for variety of styles and offerings.
The Cultural Market will limit the number of food truck operators and vendors and will select the operators, through the application process, based on the needs of The Market.
The Cultural Market will limit the number of non-profit organizations (non-retail) per week. On-site fundraising, with the exception of tickets for future events and lotteries, will not be permitted.

Good Vendor Behavior
The day of The Cultural Market can get hectic, specifically during vendor setup. The Cultural Market takes an immense amount of time and people-power to pull off. We ask that vendors be cooperative and respectful to managers and other vendors. Vendors are to be on time to set up promptly. Any verbal or physical abuse will not be tolerated, and offending individual(s) will be asked to leave immediately, and they will not be permitted at The Cultural Market in the future.
With this many people coming together to enjoy delicious food and drink, trash is always going to be an issue. We ask all of our vendors to consider the packaging they provide with their food, beverages, and other products, in order to make them recyclable, biodegradable, or reusable wherever possible.
Please consider this seriously. In the future this may be an operational requirement.
The Cultural Market, at any time and at their sole discretion, modify these terms and conditions as required with or without notice.
