Other vendors will be selling things like wellness products, fashion accessories, art, jewellery, and more.
Organized by three different Japanese-Canadian vendors, the market will run from 10 am to 5 pm on both days.
According to the event website, the goal behind the market is to “create happy events where local Japanese vendors shine, as well as non-Japanese vendors, who have [a] passion and love for Japanese culture, to join this little Japanese community.”
There will also be chances to win prizes at the market.
Early bird tickets are available for sale until May 28, with one adult ticket at $4 and two for $7; after May 28, tickets will be $5 for one adult and $9 for two.
