The Loft Market: A Pop Up For Female Entrepreneurs


The LOFT Market is an interdisciplinary shopping experience hosted by The Loft Girls on a seasonal bases at the Tett Centre for Learning and Creativity

At The LOFT Market,  the focus is on showcasing the talents of female entrepreneurs, makers, and business owners.  It is a fun evening filled with shopping, socializing, snacks, and sips! You can expect a vibrant and warm atmosphere with great music, complimentary snacks, and local wine/beer. Bring a few friends, or expect to run into a few that you know!

Many of the featured artisans and makers create one of a kind jewelry, ceramics, décor items, and bath and body products. The Market is also an opportunity for entrepreneurs to promote their businesses by bringing brochures, coupons, and other promotional material. We welcome both experienced makers as well as first time vendors!

Loft Girls Niki and Claire wanted to expand their vision and work with other likeminded females in the community, and that is how the Market came to fruition. It is a great opportunity for local women to network and share their creativity. 

The Next Loft Market will be held November 21, 2017! If you are interested in participating, applications for our fall market are available now. Applications are now closed for the Nov. 21st market but you can email us with questions at

“I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for putting on such a great event for the female vendor community.  By nature, I am not comfortable in the sales environment but last night far exceeded my expectations as it didn’t feel like a ‘vendor sale’, it felt more like a social gathering which was so refreshing.  It was probably the first ‘show’ that I have done that I can genuinely say I had fun at—and not just because of the beer….” – Dana, Tazo Bath Co.

Splendid job, Claire and Niki!  CocoaBistro was proud and will continue to support the Loft Market!  A truly impressive turnout for a first-time event! – Audrey, Cocoa Bistro
