Local Craft Shows

I am getting really excited for spring to arrive! I want to get out there this spring and start selling locally!

Does anyone know of annually, weekly, or whatever - shows, markets, or any type of place where people can sell their handmade goods. I know about the Halifax and Dartmouth Saturday markets, but I'd love to know of more - especially in the Halifax area.

Comment here and maybe we can compile a list for everyone!

Is anyone interested in creating our own recurring sale? I have already approached a few places for locations. I think something close to the farmer's market would do really well!

you're thinking saturday morning? with a bunch of us together? do you have anywhere near the market that you can think of?

I only know of a few in New Brunswick.

1. Fredericton Farmer's Market - every Saturday from 7AM until 1PM.

2. Rhoda's Flea Market in Saint John on every Sunday.

3. The Saint John City Market - daily venue

If I think of more I'll come back and post them.

I'd be interested in something in Halifax/Bedford area!

I was hoping to do one in Hammonds Plains but its the weekend before my wedding... not great timing for me :)

Will definitely be up for more over the summer!

I also have a large yardsale here at our place every summer... might sell at that too.
