What do you do when you can't bring 25 vendors and hundreds of shoppers into one space? You put your event online! That's exactly how Got Craft? came to be holding their upcoming Foodie Edition of their Virtual Market.
From August 20 through 23, shoppers can head online and shop from over two dozen Vancouver-area food-focused small businesses.
Participating vendors include popular local faves like Dicky's Dumps (handmade dumplings), Kasama Chocolate, East Van Jam, and more. The curated selection covers the spectrum from kimchi to coffee, along with snacks, sauces, sweets, kombucha, and even zero-waste kitchen products. The full vendor list is viewable online.
Your goods will get into your hungry hands via flat-rate shipping (anywhere in Canada), delivery (including delivery of frozen and temperature sensitive items to Vancouver, Burnaby, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Richmond, and New Westminster), or curbside pick-up in Vancouver.
While typically a marketplace would have a door admission, Got Craft? is suggesting that "attendees" make a contribution, and can also purchase a limited edition, locally designed and printed, Got Craft? tote bag.
"These are unusual times and many small businesses need support more than ever. Even if people aren’t able to shop right now, no act is too small – each share, purchase (small or large), each follow, each like, each thoughtful comment can all make a huge difference!" say organizers.
When: Aug. 20-23, 2020
