We have worked hard for the past 2 years to create a space that celebrates and honours local businesses while creating comprehensive safety measures with the ever changing landscape of COVID.
Here is how we will be running the market:
We are following all provincial / MB Health Inspectors mandates.
If you would like to learn more about the Provincial reopening plan please visit the gov.mb.ca website. At this time masks will be optional at the Spring Market.
2 hour shopping blocks will continue but will look a bit different as we all have a good understanding on how to respect others space and what we need to do to personally feel comfortable and safe. You will still experience reduced line ups and timed shopping blocks which allow us to have crowd control by staggering shoppers entry, quick contact tracing and creates an overall enjoyable experience for all.
Everything you love about the Third+Bird market will be there: It’s My Party selfie wall, 6 Degrees Photo Booth, DJ, Food trucks and all the Spring vibes!
All tickets will be sold online in advance starting Thursday, March 10th @ 11am ** No tickets at the door! You get to choose your 2 hour shopping block! That’s right, you choose what time you want to shop and you walk right in!
We will sell a limited amount of tickets for that shopping block … hello VIP shopping! Number of tickets will be in compliance with government guidelines + current public health orders at the time of ticket sale.
Currently retail is allowed 100% capacity. General Admission tickets will be sold at an 80% capacity. Early Bird tickets will be sold at a 60% capacity. We too, are taking our time as we ease back into a 100% full capacity environment. These numbers feel comfortable to our team as we learn to go back to ‘normal’ with full capacity and no masks.
Strollers are not allowed. Please check out our FAQ page to read more.
Children 12 and under do require a ticket for entry. There will be a limited amount of FREE child tickets for the General Admission days (Saturday and Sunday).
We have over 150 Manitoba makers, we are excited to welcome in 40 new makers to the Third+Bird family. We can't wait to see you all!
