Entrepreneurs with a wide range of holistic wellness products and services are looking to connect with clients through a new weekly market in Wolfville.
The upstairs of the Wolfville Curling Club was transformed into a haven of relaxation on Dec. 7 for a holistic wellness market.
Organizers Wanda Pike of Kentville and Jocelyn Nickerson of Black Rock say there is a certain synergy to having a weekly holistic wellness market next door to the Wolfville Farmers Market on Saturdays. Pike said there is a lot of pedestrian traffic, which could assist entrepreneurs without a physical business location.
“We are all of the same mind,” she said of the dozen or so vendors gathered on Dec. 7. “We want to promote health and wellbeing. We each contribute to that in a way.”
They want customers and clients to be able to connect with vendors one-on-one, ask questions, become educated and experience a wide spectrum of holistic wellness products and services.
Pike believes holistic products are becoming more popular and more widely accepted in general.
Nickerson said her vision for the market is to create a venue to provide support to vendors and bring awareness to the community that there is a wide range of valuable holistic wellness resources available locally that they can tap into.
Some of the products and services represented at the market included acupuncture, Reiki, reflexology, metaphysical gifts, therapeutic amber and more.
