The Market

Shop over 70 local brands from Edmonton, and all over Canada. You will be sure to find something one of kind for yourself, or a gift! Our brand owners have the option to rent a space and keep their monthly sales, or work with us through a consignment basis. Lyall's is passionate about helping entrepreneurs and hobbyists. 

The Mezzanine

Take a creative workshops upstairs in our mezzanine. Creating with clay, paint, and other crafty art supplies you will learn new skills. Who knows maybe you'll find a new side hobby! We keep workshops small, and our host will be there every step of the way. You can also reserve the room for a private event, or host your own workshop. 

We are all inclusive, you can feel at home here.

Our Story.

Lyall's Marketplace is named after Megan's grandfather, and son. The concept was created to help and support entrepreneurs, to let them focus on the creative side of their business - leaving the overhead to Lyall's Marketplace. We hold the intention of bringing different types of entrepreneurs together to sell in one communal space. By doing this, we can have a variety of businesses for our customers to easily shop from in one location.

 

Our classes allow us to share our passion for creativity. You can learn a new skill, meet new people, maybe develop a new hobby, and share some memories with friends (and a lot of laughs). Megan has always enjoyed teaching people, and sharing her tips and tricks - there is always room for more creative individuals. 

There are many other amazing stores that showcase entrepreneurs. We wanted to add a new space as our community continues to grow. As more and more people develop new passions and need a space to share their unique ideas with Edmonton, there must be ample room in order to create less repetition in these stores. By opening Lyall's Marketplace, this gives our brand owners the opportunity to showcase their talents, and not have to compete with a heavily populated market.

We would love to meet you, come in to shop, take a class, or say hello!
