Halloween market at the Binbrook Fairgrounds presented by The Mom Market Brantford

A Halloween Market hosted by The Mom Market Brantford happened at the Binbrook Fairgrounds on Saturday, Oct. 28.

The event hosted many small businesses, giving each the space to show off its products. 

“It’s getting our name out there, meeting the community,” event organizer and owner of Wisdom and Grace Jessica Tenbrinke said. “Being here in Binbrook helps us expand who knows about our business …you can’t beat that face-to-face interaction.” 

Melissa Mercer, the owner of Covered in Crystals was selling homemade spiritual items.

“I’ve been making my own crafts for a while, so a market like this helps get my name out there and really allows me to make these types of connections,” Covered in Crystals owner Melissa Mercer said. “Selling online is one thing but when you get to meet these people in person and actually make that connect and say ‘Hi’ and let them try it on, it really does wonders for any sort of crafter.”

Some vendors came dressed up in costumes to fit the Halloween theme for the market. 

Sweaters with mental health-positive slogans raised money for the Canadian Mental Health Association.

The Halloween Market had homemade candles, bath balms, bath products, sweaters, tote bags, jewelry and more. 

“I’ve been making crystal jewelry for a couple of years now, basically everything I have is handmade,” Mercer said. “It’s all crystal jewelry, hand-painted candles, basically ritual stuff, metaphysical, spiritual. Everything is intuitively chosen by myself.”

Visitors could purchase Halloween-themed chocolate-covered strawberries, freeze-dried candy and other homemade fall goodies. 

“I’m most excited about the candy and meeting new people,” Tenbrinke said. “I’m a stay-at-home mom for the most part…being able to get out and talk to people, it’s exciting for me because I don’t get to do that every day.”
