Five and a half years after its first event, Refresh manages to remain a staple for local shoppers, artists and creatives who are lured to the market for its curated range of handmade items and creative appeal.
Refresh Market goers can expect a highly edited mix of handmade and locally designed clothing, jewelry, ceramics, vintage, dry goods and more from new and established local brands and shops including homegrown favourites Billies Flower House, Nootka Naturals, Wild and Heart and Squamish Water Kefir, and newcomers My Modern Closet, hey jude, Jackson Rowe, Good Omen and Duchesse Vintage and Such. Of the 100 participating vendors, 36 per cent are new to the market.
In addition to the participating vendors, the market will include an expanded food truck zone and liquor licensing on the Friday night during which guests will have the opportunity to purchase a glass of wine or cocktail created especially for the market by local mixologist and Gillespie’s Fine Spirits co-owner Kelly Ann Woods. Refresh will also host its first happy hour from 4:00pm to 5:00pm on the Friday night.
