The first installment in a new series of monthly pop-up events is kicking off in Leslieville this weekend. Presented by Vandenberg House, a local co-working and event space, The Eastside Pop-Up Market will bring together independent artisans, designers and musicians in a summer-themed marketplace.
It sounds like it will be handmade heaven for those into all things crafty. On the scene this weekend — Saturday May 30 and Sunday May 31 from 10:00 a.m. onwards — will be 25 artisans and designers, plus live music and food and drinks from Queen Margherita Pizza and Amsterdam BrewHouse.
The free event will be held monthly throughout the summer in several eastside neighbourhoods. The next event will take place the weekend of June 20 at Jimmie Simpson Park along the theme of everything good for your mind, body and soul. Dates and locations have yet to be announced for later pop-ups in The Beach, Cabbagetown and the Danforth.
