The inaugural Bespoke Market will bring fresh creative energy and a deepened sense of community to the market world. The market, taking place from April 29 through May 1, 2022, at the Railway Museum of BC in Squamish will offer a selection of unique handmade goods as well as market favourites including vintage clothing and housewares. Live music and unique vendor displays will help inspire this new three-day experience of shopping and discovery.
At the helm is deeply experienced event producer and visionary Shannon Lorenz, whose aim is to make this market different by elevating the overall experience for everyone involved. Both shoppers and vendors alike will support each other through the commitment to consume locally and support the local economy.
The 2022 market will feature a curated lineup of over 70 creative and locally-owned businesses showcasing goods such as jewellery, paper products, ceramics, clothing, as well as artisanal food and beverages. Many vendors are from Squamish, the Sea to Sky region and beyond.
“Amid all the challenges and uncertainty the last couple of years have brought, I could see the opportunity to help people through meaningful connection. My goal is to serve creative entrepreneurs and build engaged supportive communities.” – Shannon Lorenz, Founder, Bespoke Market.
Shoppers, creators, and community members are invited to watch Bespoke’s journey unfold through the market’s social media channels, newsletter, and website for unique behind the scenes looks at the marketing, event planning and community building strategies that will be employed in this new market’s launch. Feedback and engagement are encouraged in the hopes that the Bespoke Market will continue to evolve into a market designed, bespoke, for the community it pops up in.
