Grey County’s Sydenham Campus – Regional Skills Training, Trades, and Innovation Center – will be hosting their 2nd Annual Student Makers Market in support of local youth entrepreneurs.

 

Featuring handmade products from both high school and post-secondary students, the 2nd Annual Student Markers Market will be open from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM this Saturday, December 11, 2021 within the Sydenham Campus building, located at 1130 8th Street East, Owen Sound.

 

“The Student Makers Market is a great opportunity for members of the community to come out and support local, youth lead businesses,” said Courtney Miller, Business Enterprise Manager. “There are so many talented young entrepreneurs in the region, which will be demonstrated by both the range and quality of products on display at this weekend’s markets.”

 

Student vendors will be selling a variety of handmade products including 100% soy wax candles, scrunchies, jewelry, holiday décor, woodworking, pet products, and more. All vendors will have the ability to make cash, debit, and credit transactions, and shoppers will have access to an available ATM onsite.
