What else is new this time round? There will be plenty of food and drink, as well as live music. There will be food trucks parked outside, including Angry Dragonz and Ad Mare (who make the best food truck fish & chips I’ve ever had). Greg Stone will be playing live music. There will also be food and drink vendors inside the gallery, including Moo Shu Ice Cream, Plantanos, Barking Barista Coffee, and Renew Cold Press pressed juices.
So head down to Orange Art Gallery tonight for the Ottawa Makers Market: After Hours edition. Meet some of Ottawa’s creative folk in an intimate setting, snack on some delicious eats, enjoy the live music, and don’t forget to take home a little something special!
