An rainy afternoon spent in the perfect lush setting to spend time as a family supporting local, handmade artisians.
The made in Chilliwack market was a first of its kind hosted by Loving local Makers it was a collection of some fabulous creators selling what they loved and handmade.
Everyone huddled under their tents to stay dry, however everyone had a smile on their faces and the market had a remarkable turnout inspite of the rainy weather. This market had a little something for everyone, apparel for littles and adults, accessories for adults and littles, handmade soaps and body products, home decor, and even food booths. This market was full of fun and uniqueness with a giant “Love ball” for photos and live music.
Meet some of the vendors:
A delicious booth at the market was “In a Jar” -Homemade delicious baked eats in adorable mason jars. I mean these little treats are delicious and so much so that when we got to the market they were totally sold out already. So devastating! These little treat are not only delicious they are also customizable for gifts, weddings, etc. So cute and such a great idea.
