Kamloops Artisan Market


Kamloops Artisan Market

The Kamloops Artisan Market is at McDonnald Park!

Where we are located

We are pleased to announce that the Kamloops Artisan Market will be moving from its former summer downtown location on Victoria Street to McDonald Park.

The park has a beautiful grassy and treed area with plenty of picnic tables in the shade and sun. There are two play grounds for different ages, and a brand new water park.

If your feeling like a bit of a workout there are also pickleball and basket ball courts that are free to use.

The park is also the home of a community garden where local residents grow and share delicious organic fresh food. There is a lovely large gazebo where local musicians can share their musical creativity with everyone.  

Run by artists for artists

Kamloops Artisan Market is an artist run group created for artists by artists.

All of our vendors live within Kamloops and the Thompson Okanagan. Our Market is mainly comprised of artists, crafters, artisans, musicians, performers and home based businesses.

Our vendors are dedicated and educated artists and crafters who have spent hundreds if not thousands of hours learning and perfecting their craft. They are hardworking and love to bringing their handmade arts and crafts to market year-round for our community to enjoy.

The market is vendor run and operated by our market manager Karla Pearce.  Every dollar spent goes directly to our artists and vendors; helping to keep Kamloops economy strong.   


Our mission

The Kamloops Artisan Market’s mission is to create and maintain artisan markets that support artists and the larger community.

The Kamloops Artisan Market will create, expand and enhance the economic strength and viability of artists in the Thompson Okanagan while contributing to the education and creative health of our community.

We are a creative business incubator, a weekly gathering place for inspirational thoughts and ideas. We are super kid friendly and hope to become a weekly family tradition.

The Market is free to attend and there is lots of free parking.

Our goals

Everyone has hopes and dreams. Here are a few of ours.

We want to:
• Create and increase opportunities for artists to sell their products directly to consumers

• Create and increase consumers’ opportunities to buy local products directly from artists

• Bring together families, neighbors, visitors to create a sense of community and social gathering

• Establish vibrant markets that make our market location a destination for tourists and visitors

• Provide a vehicle to educate the community on the economic value of buying local arts and crafts
