Today was the first day of Dartmouth's new weekend market and what a response. I just couldn't believe the crowds - there was nearly no parking left when I arrived within the first hour of the market opening. All the more remarkable since the Grand Opening isn't until August.
You can check out the Harborview Weekend Market's website as well as their Flickr slideshow for more pictures and details. The Bead Sisterhood features prominently under the Vendors section of their website.
Some of the vendors are still not quite ready. There are also a few empty booths but with time, I believe the market will grow and be an important part of this community like the Farmer's Market in Halifax. As this is a covered market, the stalls can be open year round. Admission is free on Saturdays and a small fee of $1 on Sundays.
And here is the Sisters Too! booth. Like many vendors, Bonnie and Cindy are still stocking and labelling. The sign was misspelt so it is currently missing in action whilst a new one is made. The picture below show Bonnie arranging our jewelry.
Here is another of a very happy Cindy!
