If this week’s sweltering weather is any indication, summer has unofficially begun – and the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association (DWBIA) is inviting Windsor-Essex residents and visitors to its eclectic summer soirees: its Night Markets.
From 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, June 17, 30+ vendors will be on hand to greet shoppers and strollers inside the Pelissier Street Parking Garage, selling their one-of-a-kind, artisanal wares.
Participating vendors including:
Alice Welsh Pawttery

Enactus, St. Clair College

Alongside the vendors? Locally renowned entertainers, including easy listening and golden oldies favourite Happy Together Duo and beloved pianist and vocalist Mark Calcott.
“The Night Market is a must-attend event for foodies and shoppers who are all about discovering new tastes, scents and treasures,” says DWBIA Chair Brian Yeomans. “But it’s also, on a smaller scale, a way to experience an intimate and vibrant street festival with enticing foods, unique goods and fabulous music.
“This way, attendees can shop and support small, local artisans and vendors while immersing themselves in talent that comes right from Windsor-Essex.
“What better way to enjoy the core?”
