Many of you know that we have been looking for a new location for The Social Spot, and though we haven’t yet found the perfect event venue space quite yet….we HAVE found a new and exciting opportunity.

Introducing, The Social Spot Marketplace – an offshoot of our beloved Pop-Up Markets offering permanent vendor spaces year-round. EEK! Located above the famous Mackay’s Ice Cream in Historic Downtown Cochrane, the Marketplace offers a permanent retail home for your locally created products.

We provide the space, the marketing, and the staff to sell the products – you pay a flat rental fee, provide the goods, and walk away with all sales. No hidden costs & no commission to payout!

As a founding vendor, we will work with you to customize the design of your shelving/space based on your preference for your products. Each space is 3ft wide by 5ft tall and will include a wooden sign with your business name above it.

Interested vendors are encouraged to apply HERE by January 12th. While we will always accept applications & fill the store as space becomes available, this deadline is in place to allow us time to select the founding vendors and officially open the Marketplace at the start of February.

Important dates to consider for The Social Spot Marketplace:

January 12th – Deadline to apply to be a founding vendor
January 13th – Selection Committee review
January 14th – Founding vendors notified
January 15 – 31 – Vendor Move In
February 2 – Grand Opening
