iMADE is a West Coast pop up market founded in 2017. Our events showcase Canadian local artists, artisans, small home based side hustles, emerging brands plus small local shops.
Shop local - today + tomorrow.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
iMADE is a curated event where independent local small brands, both new and emerging, can come together to share experiences ideas, find support and lift each other up.
With each community we hold an event in, our primary aim is to showcase these small businesses and shed light on the importance and the value to which they have within our communities. When shoppers make a purchase from one of these brands, it helps spread the importance of conscious consumerism by highlighting the value of buying locally. It just feels good!
At our iMADE events, the energy is electric, uplifting, fun, and full of discovery. In addition, we want to make the connection between community, shopping local, and buying small. Merging these important values allows us to produce successful events.
Come, try it out; you just might love it.
To inspire, create confidence, fire up creativity, generate local business, and encourage business growth. It's a great formula for success for all of us! We love diversity, inclusion, and celebrate all things kind. iMADE is a place for all humans. Come sit at the iMADE family table. There's a chair for everyone.
I found iMADE to celebrate the creative dream. We want to help the 'small' brands and businesses that get overlooked. It's these hard-working individuals who are passionate about their side hustle or full-time gig and who will put in the hard work to make their dream of being a small business owner a successful reality and who want to surround themselves with others who have these same goals. It's an incredible vibe to be in. A room is full of 'go-getters,' the 'artsy crew,' the 'underdog'... oh, you just watch them succeed. Their will is strong.
