Craft Market

Filling vacant spaces doesn’t have to be difficult. Halifax is full of beautiful and underutilized public spaces, like the historic Granville Mall. Despite being home to local businesses, restaurants, a college and office buildings in the Downtown core, Granville Mall is a quiet and underutilized space. By bringing students, Downtown workers, tourists, and other community members together, we can foster engagement.

Bringing craft markets and food vendors to a quiet area brings people to the space. By holding events in these underutilized areas, visitors can engage with the people and the local businesses around them. If people experience a successful market, they will be more likely to return to the area in the future, supporting the permanent businesses and promoting a sense of vibrancy in Granville Mall. Stay tuned in August and September 2017 for the craft market!
