We’re always on the hunt for festive fall activities and we found a market that is the perfect Saturday outing to celebrate the season.
Tomorrow, Queen West’s favourite fall market is back at The Drake Hotel. Twice a year, artists and artisans come together to showcase and sell their wares on Drake’s café patio, in an urban market that combines bake sale with yard sale. If you’re looking for vintage clothing, handmade cards and jewellery, original paintings or even fresh flowers, then look no further.
Forgot your wallet at home? The FREEcycle table, back by popular demand, has you covered. This section of the market offers gently used Drake items for free. We definitely suggest you check it out, you never know what treasures you may stumble upon. Last year we found an old silver teapot which we’ve repurposed as a fancy, “antique” watering can.
We think you’d agree that no outdoor market is complete without baked goodies. Staying true to harvest season, the market will offer caramel apples, mini pumpkin pies, as well as chocolate chip and bacon cookies (leave it to Drake to be right on-trend, bacon is appearing in everything these days) and more.
The Drake Fall Market will take place on Saturday, October 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Drake’s café patio at 1150 Queen St. W. See you there.
