One of B.C.'s largest indie marketplaces for handmade and locally designed wares.
Established in 2011, Refresh Market was created to celebrate artisan culture, and build a new community of local artists, designers and indie shop owners.
Refresh Market has remained one of the most anticipated ‘shop small’ events for consumers, artists and designers, and has been a pioneering force on the craft market scene. The market lineup of features a meticulously curated selection of handmade and locally designed clothing, jewelry, ceramics, art, vintage, artisan food, skincare and homewares from neighbourhood favourites as well as up-and-coming artists and brands. Our markets attract thousands of visitors committed to supporting our local economy.
Refresh Market was founded by Shannon Lorenz and Rachel Boguski, two Squamish locals who bonded over the desire to support local and create what they felt was missing in the community: a really great day of shopping. We are proud to have raised over $8,000 to support local non-profit organizations in our community.
