about the market
Hello Local Market actually started out the White Barn Market as a humble, small town outdoor market located near Thorsby, Ab with just 8 vendors on June 1st, 2014. We wanted to promote the quality, handmade items from our local communities rather than driving to the big city to shop at corporate stores.
Multiplying in size and popularity over the years, the White Barn Market has been recognized in Leduc's Pipestone Flyer in 2015, on Made Urban in 2016 and awarded Metro Edmonton's Community Choice Farmer's Market for 2017.
After expanding beyond our land capacity with 60+ vendors, we decided to take a short break in 2018.
Our goal is to come back strong for 2019 in a NEW LOCATION at Telford Lake in Leduc, Ab under the new name of Hello Local, yet with the same naturally humble, family orientated vibe with all the high quality, unique & currently trendy handcrafted and locally sourced items we've become known for.
Whether you're from Banff, Calgary, Lloydminster or the YEG area, there's probably a friend that would LOVE to join you on your next visit to the market! And it's easy to make a day of it with our delicious food trucks, live local musicians, and amazingly talented makers.
