Where do you go to spend your Calgary Dollars (C$)? Or where you can sell your items, and be part of the Calgary Dollars community? Go to our monthly Markets!
Markets are an excellent opportunity to exchange goods or services for Calgary Dollars, meet other members of the Calgary Dollars Community, or sign up to become a new member. It’s here where you can buy, sell, trade, make new friends, and be connected to a community that is trying to make a difference.
If you’re a business or an individual that is interested is being part of the Calgary Dollars community, come and sell your items as a vendor for the Market. Being a vendor is free, and if you book a table ahead, you get some C$ to start using them then and there. Contact us to book.
Our Markets also have food service, where you can purchase healthy home-made style meals in C$. Why spend time and money at home when you can enjoy a great meal in community and spend your C$! Each Market will be a space for participants / vendors to buy and sell, as well as create community through food. Come and join us for this fun and filling experience.
