THIRD + BIRD flies into The Forks Market

Posted on Dec 10, 2015 by The Forks Market

There's something one-of-a-kind about THIRD+BIRD — besides the fact that it's totally local. It's an event that takes the best of what Manitoba farmers, artisans, makers and local businesses have to offer, and puts it all in one place. They select the best of the best to be vendors.

Needless to say, it's gained a reputation for being not-your-grandma's craft market.

If you haven’t been able to make it out to any of their events, now’s your chance. On December 12/13 and 19/20 THIRD + BIRD will be in Centre Court at The Forks Market doing a pop up with select vendors so you can see what all the buzz is about.

Here’s a full list of who’s coming, when, and what they are all about:
