OPPORTUNITY:

As part of the festival celebrations, organizers are seeking applications from Artisan Vendors. A prime opportunity to showcase your handcrafted product, The Mississauga Festival of Trees Artisan Market (“MFT Artisan Market”) will be the perfect go-to venue for unique quality hand-crafted gifts. Featuring an array of talented artisans from across Ontario, the MFT Artisan Market will be an immersive and entertaining one-stop-shop for visitors to gift and entertain during the holiday season.

LOCATION:

Small Arms Inspection Building
Mississauga, Ontario

COSTS:

Option 1 Regular Booth ($300) 11’ x 9’ = 99 sq ft

  • Includes one table with linens, and two chairs.

Option 2 Gallery Booth ($325) 11’ x 9’ = 99 sq ft

  • Includes one table with linens, and two chairs.
  • Gallery booths are located against a large white gallery wall which offers vendors an excellent way to display their work. Artists in gallery booths will be allowed to attach items directly to the wall (no grid required), as long as their method of attachment is approved by the Artisan Market Team.

Option 3 Corner Booth ($400)

  • 12’ x 9’ = 108 sq ft
  • Includes two tables with linens, and two chairs

  • They come in a range of prices;
  • They are produced in Canada.

Non-eligible items:
