Market Collective: 10 Year Anniversary

Story and photos by Sara Kuefler. There is no need to wonder why the Market Collective logo features hearts. From its humbler but very sincere beginning 10 years ago, when a crew of artists and musicians set up inside the Carpenter’s Union Hall and subsequently the old Ant Hill building, both in Kensington, to the current large-scale celebration happening at the BMO Centre on the Stampede Grounds, Market Collective has always been made with love.  Maybe that is one of the reasons it has always attracted people.
