Uptown Open Air Market


July 8 – August 26, 2020

Willis Way, Caroline St. to Waterloo Town Square South Parking Lot Entrance (rainbow crosswalk)

The Uptown BIA is excited to be hosting a weekly market on Willis Way – view a map here – and the Waterloo Public Square on Wednesdays in July and August from 5 to 8 p.m.! We are partnering with local vendors and businesses to offer the community an opportunity to safely visit Uptown Waterloo to shop local foods, retail items, artisans and more! 

Interested in being a vendor?

To limit cross-contamination, vendors will be responsible for bringing their own tables and tents. All vendors must review the protocols and requirements and acknowledge a memorandum of understanding with the BIA (see below). There will be no charge to vendors participating in the open-air market. 

Please carefully read and review the vendor information and guidelines below, sign the memorandum of understanding (included in the PDF) and email back to Dawne Taylor-Gilders, Events & Outreach Manager: dawne.gilders@waterloo.ca.

Interested in volunteering?

The BIA relies on generous volunteers to help execute the event and ensure health and safety precautions are in place. Join us in this special opportunity to help businesses and encourage the community to come back up to Uptown Waterloo!
