we believe in
Well-Designed & Sustainable Goods to the Masses
We believe that thoughtful, well-designed, sustainable goods are the way of the future. More and more people are asking how their goods were made and interested in knowing the story and makers behind them. The Citizens Collective brings together these talented makers, designers, and artists under one roof to support their dreams of entrepreneurship while helping conscientious consumers connect and shop directly from dozens of brands under one roof.
We invite you to come to our Spring or Holiday markets and to discover the amazingly talented small businesses that are taking Toronto by storm; support the local economy while discovering great design. We’re certain you’ll leave having found new brands you can’t stop talking about and inspired by the talent, and passion they showcase. You’ll probably also leave with a purchase or two…or ten.
how we roll
Since launching in 2017, The Citizens Collective has hosted some of the most interesting and innovative brands to come out of Toronto (and neighbouring cities - special shout out to Montreal!). Below are just some of the small businesses that have participated in The Citizens Collective markets. See the full list here.
Founded in 2015, Maggie Jayne is a small, sustainable-oriented, contemporary clothing brand founded by its namesake Maggie MacCormick. The design studio is based in Halifax and the clothing is thoughtfully produced in Jaipur, India.
Inspired by the slow-living lifestyle, Esme and Fan create wheel-thrown functional, wearable and decorative handmade ceramic pieces in their home studio in small batches. Their well crafted pieces compliment nature, engage one’s senses, and encourage rituals in everyday life.
A contemporary home fragrance label founded in Toronto, Canada, 100 Years of Love is made with only the highest quality ingredients and through a process of small batch production - each and every candle is hand poured and hand labeled with love.
