PINK MARKET is a queer craft, fashion, art & lit fair.
We are Toronto’s oldest and largest queer craft event, welcoming almost 10,000 visitors since our first event in 2015.
We aim to give queer creators from Toronto and across Canada a platform for their work, connecting them to members of the public as well as fostering a community of LGBTQ artists and makers.
We hold events twice a year: PINK MARKET, held during the early summer to coincide with Toronto's Pride festivities, and PINK XMAS, ahead of the holiday season.
For our summer 2019 event, PINK MARKET is partnering with the Inside Out LGBT Film Festival, a cultural organization committed to challenging attitudes and changing lives through year-round initiatives in queer cinema.
BECOME A VENDOR
This is a juried event.

Preference will also be given to vendors who are available to sell on both Saturday and Sunday.
If you would like to split your table with a specific vendor, please note that they must submit their own application and must be juried separately, as vendor space is limited.
Tables (6 feet by 2.5 feet) and chairs will be provided by the venue.

($75 charitable donation tax receipt issued)
$80 — Half table
($40 charitable donation tax receipt issued)
