Black Cat Tattoo is hosting their 2nd Annual Winter Market on Sunday, December 11 at the Fernwood Community Centre at 1240 Gladstone Avenue. The market runs from 10am to 6pm and features 30+ vendors.

Last year’s Black Cat Winter Market attracted hundreds of visitors who showed up to support local artists and makers. This year’s market includes even more vendors offering a huge variety of handmade and custom-designed goods. Expect to find art prints, apparel, ceramics, crochet, handcrafted leather, beadwork, enamel pins, canine accessories, and more. Hot drinks will be available from Routine Coffee & Supply’s onsite pop-up.

Established in 2016, Black Cat Tattoo’s first shop was located just around the corner from Fernwood Square. In 2020, in order to accommodate more artists and comply with social distancing requirements, the shop moved downtown to 659 Johnson St.

Entry to the Black Cat Winter Market is free. The Fernwood Community Centre is stroller & wheelchair accessible. Masks are mandatory. Please consider bringing cash; while many vendors accept debit & credit card payments, some may not.
