Alleyways Market (est. 2016) is a distinctly Exchange District take on outdoor markets, curated by Luckygirl Pop Up. Part food market & part maker pop-up, the alley will be filled with a mix of handmade goods, ready to eat snacks and locally produced food to take home. This market is well known for it’s amazing summer nights vibe that is popular with both the neighbourhood and beyond!

Alleyways Gallery is an art focused alley between Albert St and Arthur St curated by Bevvy Teyems, a custom framing shop and art market in the Exchange. Each event will be unique and accessible to all, stretching from traditional gallery to installations and community workshops.
