Our Olive & Annie team has been hard at work creating a new shopping market for mothers in Northern Ontario, Canada over the holiday season. We teamed up with Sprout Handmade to create this unique fair trade market featuring some of our favourite Canadian small shops!
The MOM2MOM Market will take place on the last Saturday of each month in Sudbury, ON (Canada). Each month a different venue will be selected and donations will be accepted for two charities - one local and one international - which support women and children. Here are some sneak peaks of some of the brands which will be feature at the first MOM2MOM Market on January 28th, 2017!
Bebe Fete: Bébé Fête is a proudly Canadian company that specializes in streetwear for babies and toddlers. All of their adorable garments are made locally in Toronto, ON and the artwork is screen printed using eco-friendly methods.
Our team loves the Nursery Rhymes sweater and we made sure to have lots in stock for the first MOM2MOM Market!
Mo Green: Mo Green Clothing Co. was created by a husband and wife team in Toronto, ON. The pair were inspired by the adventures and experiences of raising their son which led to the creation of Mo Green Clothing Co. All Mo Green clothing is locally curated, designed, and printed in Canada.
Similar to Olive & Annie Mo Green believes in giving back. The company proudly donates 5% of profit from every sale to local charities. Our favourite product from Mo Green is their "THE TRIBE" sweater which says "We Are All In This Together". We loved the message the sweater shares! All proceeds from the sale of "THE TRIBE" support The New Mom Project.
Young Living: Young Living was founded by Gary Young and Mary Young in 1993. For over two decades Young Living has assisted millions of North American's through the natural benefits of essential oils.

There are countless benefits to using essential oils and Young Living creates an amazing product line which assists with a variety of benefits for moms from minimizing your stress levels, offering natural cleaning products within your home, to providing safe and organic detergents.
Young Living products have expanded to Canada which saves on shipping expenses and offers moms the opportunity to have easy access to their fantastic products!
