I am Sarah, designer and owner of Lago: Exotic Jewelry & Designs. Fashion and Creative Arts have always been a huge passion in my life. I thought I would become a fashion designer but while I was living in Guatemala and Central America for seven years I realized I was most inspired to make jewelry and accessories. I put all of my energy into perfecting my skills and made a living selling my jewelry on the streets. This allowed me to live the lifestyle I wanted… To be free to travel, meet interesting people, observe different cultures and make some money all at the same time. Along the way I met many other talented artisans from all over the world. We would exchange techniques and inspirations and new ideas and designs would form. My style is very unique and influenced by all of my adventures. I am inspired by nature and have a huge fascination with different ethnic groups and indigenous people. How they adorn themselves using what is available to them in their respective environments and the techniques and traditions that they use to create their beautiful designs is very inspiring to me and my work.

Hello, my name is Donna Barker and I am a landscape and wildlife photographer. I specialize in photo prints on metal. Metal Art prints are produced on aluminum panels. They offer exceptional durability as well as outstanding image clarity and vibrancy along with exceptional detail and resolution with an outstanding depth and colour intensity that has to be seen to be believed. Metal Art panels are produced via a sublimation process using dyes as opposed to traditional inks. This process is designed to produce prints with intense depth and colour intensity. Because the image is infused INTO the surface of the aluminum, not onto it, the durability and life of the prints is unsurpassed. Metal Art prints have four times the longevity of a normal archival photo print.Because they are very durable they are ideal for the traveller. They are light weight and you can throw them in a suitcase and not have to worry about damage.They have to be seen to be believed. Stop by my booth and have a look. I also sell matted prints, framed prints, and greeting cards to send home. Hope to see you at the Market!

WINES, BEERS & SPIRITS
BANFF AVE BREWING CO.
Our founding principle at the Banff Ave Brewing Co. is to create the absolute highest quality beer experience possible. This guiding philosophy encompasses everything that we do. We have taken on the responsibility of localizing the beer experience by making authentic, fresh craft products that establish a new, truly Canadian beer culture. We use only the best ingredients: premium hops and malts combined with our own cultured yeast strains. Our fourth and final ingredient is the pure, natural mountain water sourced from the great Canadian Rockies. Unlike most commercial breweries, we do nothing to our water but remove the chlorine added to it. Our fresh beer is made with real glacial water and all the minerals that come with it! The premium beers that we brew have grown from roots grounded deeply in tradition. Our dedicated Brewmasters use time-tested recipes and brewing methods in our in-house brewery. Our hops and malts are sourced from around the world as to provide true styles with the unique twist of glacial water. This combination yields beers that are absolutely the best that they can be. Our beers are for everyone. They are fresh, modern, and innovatively looking to the future. They are true and honest, drawing on experience from history. We truly believe there is an occasion for every beer and a beer for every occasion.

Using RAW Alberta grains and glacier water from the Rocky Mountains, we want to produce adventurous, bold spirits that we can all be proud of. A consumer tasting experience is where we see the real ‘craft’ of distilling shining through RAW ingredients. Albertans are hard-working people, proud of the land and the grain they produce. We are committed to staying true to the farming roots of this province and to distilling with only the purest, high-quality ingredients. Where each of our ingredients comes from in their RAW form is very important to us.
