Old Hickory Waterside Markets

Calling all artists, artisans, musicians, home-based businesses, and the like! The Lac du Bonnet CDC and our partners are pleased to announce that we are accepting vendor applications for our Old Hickory Waterside Markets!

The LdB CDC, Old Hickory Buildings, the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet, and the Manitoba Made Store, have come together with a vision of bringing LdB a new pop-up market series. This year, we want to test the theory and work with you, the vendors, to make this vision a reality.
Old Hickory Buildings has donated two buildings for vendors to use during the Market. Building One is 7’ x 11’, or 77 square feet, and Building Two measures 9’ x 15’, or 135 square feet.

The Old Hickory Waterside Markets will take place at Fernwood Boat Launch, a high-traffic location in the heart of Lac du Bonnet’s Cottage community. Surrounded by full and part-time residents, boaters, paddlers, explorers and community visitors, vendors will be exposed to high foot traffic, limited competitors, and an intimate country setting.

Space is limited. We envision a max of two vendors per day unless vendors want to partner with friends to make the space work for a collective group. The desired market dates are Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, but vendors are welcome to sign up for weekdays too.

Vendors can set up at Fernwood Boat Launch for FREE to sell their goods/services and promote their businesses. In return, all we ask for is your feedback and ideas on how we can grow and perfect this event in future years.

Future Goals

The 2022 Old Hickory Waterside Markets is a test year, so we can accurately expand in 2023. Our goals for 2022 and future years are to help promote smaller businesses and artists/artisans and create a unique shopping experience in Lac du Bonnet.

Next year, we want to expand to more locations in Lac du Bonnet, namely to other boat launches, have more buildings onsite per location, and have market dates throughout the whole summer season.
