Community Market

The purpose of the Living Temagami Arts and Culture is to promote community interest, engagement, appreciation, and education in the arts, culture, heritage, local history, and other areas.

The Temagami Community Market has been a staple within our community since 2009. Originally founded through the dedicated work of amazing community volunteers, the market has grown and thrived in our region. Living Temagami took up the mantle in 2020, and is thrilled to lead the organization of these market events with the continued support of many invaluable volunteers and supporters!

At the Temagami Community Market, community spirit is in full supply! All are welcome within our family-friendly space and we encourage you to stay and meet with friends and community members as you shop.

At each market you can enjoy live music entertainment while you explore vendor tables that sell:

  • locally grown food
  • hand-made crafts
  • unique art
  • traditional local Indigenous creations
  • wood carvings
  • jewelry
  • delicious baking and snacks
  • regionally inspired gifts
  • …and much, much more!
