Carnival Vendor Market

2:00 pm - 6:00 pm 5402 - 47 Avenue

This free event, which runs from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. until Oct. 11, raises money for Tutor Angels, which helps students learn. Tutor Angels owner Tricia Pope said she wants “families to come out and have a good time” at the event. “Our motto is, Eat. Play. Shop. We have food trucks, we have floor hockey, a Lego table, a bouncy castle. We want to be a family-friendly market, not just an adult market,” Pope said, adding there is a fee for the bouncy castle, which may not be at the event every week. About 20 vendors are scheduled to participate Friday – people can shop for housewares, jewellery, clothing and more. Pope said she hopes to have 100 vendors by the end of the season. Money raised will support the cost of staff training and provide subsidies for families who need reduced fees for services at Tutor Angels.
