We ask that artists and food vendors set up between 12:00pm - 3:30pm on the Friday of the event date. Doors open on Friday at 4:00pm, and at that point every space should be completely ready. Remember that there are going to be many other artists and musicians setting up, so it’s necessary to arrive on time.
We have a policy that artists should not leave before the end of the event. If there is a pressing concern, or emergency, please inform us at the event before packing up. If there is no valid reason, this will affect your involvement with the MC in the future.
Where is the venue located?
The event is located at a warehouse in Inglewood. The address is 1390-17 Ave SE.
Should I bring anything else for my table?
Yes! We encourage all artists to bring anything you want to decorate your space. Table cloths, shelves, anything!
What time does the Market Collective end?
The Market Collective runs until 6pm on Sunday, at which time we will start take down.
What form of payment is there at the Market Collective?
Because artists and food vendors keep 100% of their commission, artists are responsible for their own payments. Please bring any systems that you use and your own float! There will be an ATM available on-site for people to withdraw money.
What if I need to cancel my table?
To obtain a full refund, artists and food vendors must cancel no later than 3 weeks before the event date. A $25 administration fee will be charged on all refund requests.
How do we know what table is ours?
We will have a floor plan set up and copies will be available at the entrance of the space. Find your name and you will find your corresponding number. Every table is numbered and there’s also a floor plan that shows the tables and their numbers.
Is my work/equipment safe to leave overnight?
Yes, the building is a secure and safe space to confidently leave your work or equipment overnight. However, please note that Market Collective is not liable for lost or stolen items.

You can pay for your booth in four ways:
Your work should be thoughtfully designed and created with a high level of craftsmanship. It is finished, professional, and consistent.
We want to support creatives from our city, province, and country. Your work must be locally made or locally designed.
Your photos are polished and show off your work in the best possible light. Your booth set-up is eye-catching and expresses your unique identity.
Your price range falls within the normal range for MC. We look for work that fits the market context and does not undervalue your work while also remaining accessible for our visitors.
We want to see change and progression in your work. We like those who show their ability to evolve over time.
We want to see engaging personalities that create a fun atmosphere. MC is not just a market, it's a community.
Your work stands out from others in the same category. We look for innovation and strive for a diverse market with no saturation in any one category.
Thanks so much for your support.
