You've got questions about the HandMade Market? We've got the answers!
Please pre-purchase tickets online prior to attending this event. Tickets will be provided digitally. Display the barcode/QR code on your mobile device or print your ticket to be scanned at the event entrance. Tickets are for a one time use and there will be no re-entry. Please arrive within 30 minutes of selected ticket time.
Using tickets with staggered entry times eases the flow of attendees and we are able to create a more enjoyable event for you! Attendance will be balanced throughout the day so that long line-ups and congestion are significantly reduced or eliminated and parking is more available.
Once you check-in with your ticket, you can stay and shop as long as you'd like!
Tickets are non-refundable, but may be transferred to a friend or family member. If events are cancelled / postponed, your ticket can be re-used at our next annual event of the same type.
Plenty of free field parking (unpaved grass field) is available on site for our Spring Market – please follow signage at the property and the directions of the attendants.
For your safety, please DO NOT park on the side of the road.
Please carpool to help reduce single-occupancy vehicles and improve traffic flow, ease and availability of parking for all. We're grateful for the volunteers of the Rotary Club of Lincoln who will be operating our on-site field parking this year.
Birthed in a serendipitous series of events, the first HandMade Market market took place in the living room of our 150 year old Niagara farmhouse way back around the Christmas of 2009.
While the market has grown significantly since it’s inception, we have carefully maintained it as a boutique artisan market experience featuring hand-crafted products created by local artisans and small businesses from across Ontario, Québec and Canada's east coast! It is our mandate to promote and support the handmade movement while offering our guests a local shopping alternative in an upscale atmosphere.
Our mantra is ... Shop. Sip. Savour.
The market is produced by life-long Niagara residents Jennifer Elliotson and Mark Elliotson. With our many years of hospitality, production and marketing experience, we combined our skillset with our passion for supporting the arts and small business to create the HandMade Market.
We've curated and collected hundreds of one-of-a-kind makers and artisans and thousands of hand-crafted products all in one place! The HandMade Market features the work of 100% Canadian Makers including Jewellery, Pottery, Glass, Hand-Sewn Bags, Fashion Accessories, Preserves, Bath + Body Products, Original Fine Art, Designer Clothing, Kids Clothes, Knits, Home Decor, Luxury Hand-Spun Fibres, Artisan Wood Products, Leather, Handbound Books and so much more! Plus, there's always yummy food trucks and wine as well as live local music to enjoy!

In a world where every dollar you spend is a vote of support, the HandMade Market offers you an important opportunity to choose to support local Canadian small businesses and the arts at the same time! We work hard to create an uplifting social experience that brings the humanity back into our daily transactions!

SPRING MARKETS > Although the winery and bakery buildings are both fully accessible, the primary artisan village and food truck areas of this large event are OUTDOOR and are not easily accessible by wheelchair. This large outdoor event encompasses an extremely wide geographic area composed of various uneven terrains (grassy field, loose gravel, etc.).
SPRING MARKETS > there are approximately 30 reserved accessible parking spots within 50 metres of the artisan village admission tent that are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
We welcome guests of any age and love to see young supporters of the arts! That being said, this is most definitely an ‘adult’ event featuring artisans, food, wine, art and live music.
Admission is always free for children 15 and under.
For the enjoyment and comfort of other guests and our artisans, we kindly ask you to leave your pets at home for these events. Exceptions are made for registered service animals only.
