The Pickering Markets is the only multi-cultural marketplace in the heart of Pickering, Ontario. Within our four walls, there is something magical that happens every weekend; people from all over Ontario come together and create a vibrant bustling marketplace. With over 500 vendors in our large building, it can seem easy to get lost or feel overwhelmed with so many products to choose from. But if you let yourself wander through the aisles, you’ll discover some amazing items!
At the beginning of 2017, the Pickering Markets team wanted to do something different to showcase our products. With a large amount of retail vendors focusing on men’s and women’s fashion, we decided to create a fashion shoot highlighting outfits created with everything taken directly from the marketplace. It was important to keep the photo shoot at the market, although this was a big undertaking, we were excited for the challenges ahead. We set up the studio in our office space, and away we went!
We then invited a talented local stylist, Angela Pak, to come in and wander through the aisles, picking out pieces that caught her eye. From there, we completed the fun and trendy looks with the help of awesome makeup artist, Nikki Ashworth, and hair stylist, Corrine Carpenter. Lastly, we had a great photographer, Christine Buijs, to capture the perfect photo and of course, we had to include some wacky jumping shots! Our models wore the outfits beautifully and moved so effortlessly in front of the camera, our team standing behind the camera couldn’t help but call out our favorite items! Lastly, we had the amazing videographer, Alvin Campana, document the day so we can share it with all of our valued Pickering markets guests that come every weekend!
