What is Etsy: Made in Canada?
Good question! Etsy: Made in Canada is a national, community-led initiative celebrating the crafters, collectors and artisans in local communities across the country. From coast to coast, Canadian cities and towns will be participating in these events powered by Etsy Teams. Popping up in more than 40 cities, Etsy artisans will sell their handmade wares, vintage goods and supplies to local buyers at these marketplaces, each representing the spirit of the local community.
What is Etsy?
Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. Our mission is to keep commerce human, and we're committed to using the power of business to strengthen communities and empower people. We connect millions of buyers and sellers from nearly every country in the world. Buyers come to Etsy to be inspired and delighted by items that are crafted and curated by creative entrepreneurs. For sellers, we offer a range of tools and services that address key business needs.

Do I have to be an Etsy member to shop at a market?
