Red Deer Downtown Business Association launches Downtown Saturday Market

The Red Deer Downtown Business Association (DBA) is proud to announce the launch of a brand-new downtown market for Red Deer, starting Saturday, May 20th at 10am, located on Ross Street and Little Gaetz. 
This open-air urban market will have no restrictions on vendors and can accommodate everyone!  The downtown business community are thrilled to welcome visitors to the core and their offerings are sure to delight.  Attendees can enjoy the many benefits of the Entertainment District, which includes revelling in the numerous food and beverage options on the Ross Street Patio while taking in the local live music.
The cost to be a vendor in the new DBA Downtown Saturday Market is an affordable $40 per week and all vendors must complete an application form to attend.  The application will be live on downtownredder.com on Thursday, April 27th, 2023 (tomorrow) at noon.  The application can be both completed and submitted online.  Once the application is approved, vendors will be contacted by the Market Manager to confirm the online payment process and be provided with a booth number and map for access.

Amanda Gould, DBA Executive Director.
“The new DBA Downtown Market will be transformative for downtown Red Deer as it shows the community the countless positive things we have to offer while attracting various demographics.  This is not just a win for the downtown, but for the community, and if we want to succeed in revitalizing the downtown core, this is the biggest and most effective step we can take”.
