Why Choose Us?

We Work as Family.

The Market Family is not just about shopping local, we are connecting every participant to each other, either vendors with more customers, volunteers with the community, local friends with newcomers, international community with local groups, and the list goes on and on. We are a multi-directional market group, which means the interactions are not limited to just vendor-customers. We help all participants to connect each other, through family activities, online challenges, games, live performances, cultural and social events, workshops, training, volunteering opportunities for local and international students and/or professionals wanting to expand their network, educational activities, and more. This is a family of friends making more friends and you can be part of it!

It's amazing what The Market Family is doing. Their events are unique, the vendors are amazing, and there's a real sense of community in everything they do.

About Us

Danilo Gonzalez


The Market Family is a new community market organization created in 2019, operating online, locally, and globally but also on site in St. John’s (Newfoundland, Canada) and surrounding areas. We are a network of local entrepreneurs from different disciplines and cultural backgrounds, offering multicultural products but also with local signatures from Newfoundland. The Market Family is a large group of experienced local professionals, businesses owners and friends working together offering high quality products, locally handmade, and expanding the cultural concept of community markets in the province.

We work with local business owners who are seeking for promotion, exposure, networking and a closer experience with customers. We support local experienced vendors but also, give opportunities to brand new entrepreneurs who want to make a difference and express themselves through their unique products and connection with the community. 


The Market Family Café

Our vision is to create an expanded concept of community market places, where local residents can connect and interact in a friendly atmosphere, making this their preferred place to stop by and being themselves or hang out with new friends. The Market Family Café combines those elements since 2019 offering a vibrant food menu made with love, fresh and prepared everyday by an energetic staff and vendors.  We are currently in the process of switching to a new location. (CITY PERMIT IN PROCESS - 319 Hamilton Ave application) 

Our next location: Coming in early 2024

We are finishing our lease at YMCA (35 Ridge Rd, St John's) on November 30th, 2023.

After November 30th we won't be operating at that address. Instead, we will be working temporarily as a cloud kitchen offering catering and deliveries scheduled by cities (Pre Orders on website Only).

Doordash and Skip The Dishes will be temporarily off during that time until opening of new location.

As soon as we get formal confirmation by the city we will start preparing the site. Opening sooner than you think!
