2015 Island Mavins "Market Moments"............


A big "thank you" to all of the people who came out this year to support us at our new market location....even with the "hot hot" weather the turn out was beyond expectation! 

Also thanks to "Tayrex Food Truck" for the delicious food, to "Mile Zero" and "Leslie Gentile" for serenading the public while they shopped. 

To our very talented vendors who came ready to display their wonderful wares and for braving the "heat" on one of the "hottest" weekends so far this summer. You really out did yourselves!  

To our fabulous and very hard working volunteers, we couldn't have done it without you!

And last but not least...to the "Boganes" family for allowing us the use of their beautiful farm for our market this year. 

We are exhausted but looking forward to doing it all again next year!

The market will be held on the same weekend in July but as mentioned above will now be a two day event - 

  • Saturday July l8th 2015 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and 
  • Sunday July 19th 2015 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.  

The entry fee for the public will be $3.00 per day or $5.00 for the two days. Children 12 and under get in free. There will also be lots of free parking on-site. 

We have many of our wonderful previous vendors returning along with amazing new vendors all bringing an array of fabulous items such as refurbished furniture, antiques, vintage and upcycled home decor, handmade signs, handmade linens, handmade cushions, handmade soaps and lotions, paper goods, floral arrangements and so much more!
