PINK MARKET is a queer craft, fashion, art & lit fair.
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.
Our fourth PINK XMAS (and seventh market overall) will be held December 2018 at The 519 Community Centre, a charitable organization and community space dedicated to the inclusion, acceptance and awareness of LGBTQ rights in Toronto and beyond.

Spots for PINK MARKET go early and fast! We'd love to make room for everyone but unfortunately that just isn't possible. Follow us on Facebook to find out about future events — we'd love to have you sometime!
IS THERE A CHARGE TO ATTEND?
Attendance at the market is pay-what-you-can. There is a suggested, voluntary donation of $5, but no guests will be turned away due to lack of funds.
CAN I VOLUNTEER AT THE MARKET?
Absolutely! We're looking for queer-positive volunteers looking to engage with the community and meet artists and artisans of all kinds. Email us at pinkmarketTO@gmail.com for more info.
IS THe MARKET "FAMILY FRIENDLY"?
We welcome guests of all ages to Pink Market events. However, many of our vendors and artists create sex-positive content or sell adult items, and some frank depictions of human anatomy or explicit language may be used in featured artwork.
IS THE VENUE WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE?
Yes! The 519 has wheelchair access via a ramp from Church St. (Fabarnak entrance). The market is in the second-floor ballroom, which is accessible via elevator.
WILL YOU HAVE AN ASL INTERPRETER ON-SITE?
Yes! We make sure an ASL interpreter is on-site and available to interpret for our guests as needed.
