Ways to support local art

The City of Pickering is committed to providing a space for local artists to connect with residents and showcase their work, via the Virtual Market. Browse through our 76 artists, artisans, and authors and please consider making a purchase.  Your purchase makes an impact directly to keep our local artists thriving, so next year we can come back in-person with even more artists in Esplanade Park.  Purchases or inquires can be made directly with the individual artists through the contact info in the virtual market.  If you need help connecting to one of our artists, please call 905.420.4620 or email events@pickering.ca
