YGK Artisan Market’s mission is bringing community together by supporting shopping local and giving back to local charities.
Run by a non-profit volunteer team that includes Jessica Pecore (founder and co-owner of Ella Pearl Boutique), Blaize R. (Co-host and custom care coordinator at The Judy May Real Estate Team), and Ravlin Roy (social media coordinator & owner of Earthly Mama Photography), the YGK Artisan Market regularly hosts three markets a year.
“We are excited to be raising money during this market for the Canadian Cancer Society branch in Kingston — FLA & The Waterways,” says Jessica Pecore, Founder of YGK Artisan Market. “With funds going directly to support prostate cancer in honour of Fathers Day 2020, our goal is to raise $3,000. Each donation goes along way. A direct link to our fundraising page will be shared on Monday, Jun. 1, 2020 on our website with more details on how you can support this incredible cause.”
Over 45 makers, small businesses and entrepreneurs will participate in this online event. Shoppers will have the option to choose local pick up at Riverhead Brewing Company or affordable flat rate tracked shipping through Swiftpost across Canada.
The market will run virtually from Thursday, Jun. 11 to Sunday Jun. 14, 2020.
The virtual market will take place on the YGK Artisan Market website: https://www.ygkartisanmarket.com/
