Oaklands Sunset Markets

Applications for the 2017 season are open closed! Thank you to everyone who applied.

The Oaklands Sunset Market is a community gathering place with a focus on locally made, baked, and grown products. Our goal is to provide a space for a vibrant celebration of local love through food, arts and culture, and inclusivity. We seek to engage our community and create an accessible, free gathering for people to come together and meet local food growers, producers, and businesses.
 
The Oaklands Sunset Market began as a community celebration, a space for neighbours and local businesses to come together and build community connections. Since 2012, we have grown in size, capacity, and scope but we continue to cultivate local economic development, community connections, and to support local arts and culture. We strive to enrich the lives of our community with knowledge of food security and sustainable food practises, by providing access to local food and direct access to local farmers and food producers.
 
In 2017, The Oaklands Sunset Market is a free, weekly community celebration featuring over 50 local food growers and producers, artisans, crafters, and body products, live music, and a space for the community to come together and meet their neighbours. The Market runs every Wednesday from 4:30pm to 8:30pm from June 28th to August 30th at the Oaklands Community Centre.
