Since its founding in 2011, the Refresh Handmade Market has grown to be a Squamish community staple, a bi-annual handmade market which attracts 5,000+ visitors each year.
Of the one hundred vendors attending this year’s spring market, which is twice as many as in previous years, the most recent additions include: Vancouver’s Harlow Skin Co., The Juice Truck, Noble and Co. and Fable Naturals. Other vendors include carefully curated makers, artists and designers from all across the lower mainland.
“Our goal behind Refresh is to offer a unique experience to ensure visitors continue to feel inspired, engaged and curious to hear what we’re up to next. We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to grow and this year we’ve added more vendors, a wider selection of food trucks and made overall improvements to manage traffic flow in and out of the market.” – Shannon Lorenz, co-founder of Refresh Market
To complement the growth, Refresh has extended its opening hours for its community of supporters.
