Toronto Dark Arts Market is an artisan market dedicated to all things weird and wonderful. Artists, artisans, musicians, writers, and makers of alternative goodness are all featured in this in-person marketplace.

Toronto Dark Arts Market is run by Sheryl Kirby. Involved in Toronto’s Goth and alternative scene since the late 1980s, Sheryl has over twenty-five years of experience in concert and event production including Convergence 4, Hallowmas, and Toronto Indie Arts Market. She is also an author, artist, and artisan herself, and has vast experience with artisan markets both as a producer and a vendor.

Ground Control (1279 Queen Street West) is the latest project by DJ Lazarus. This Bowie-inspired bar is fully accessible, has an ATM on site, and boasts both a lounge area and a large space for live performances and dance nights. The 501 Queen streetcar stops less than a block away in both directions (Queen West at Brock); the nearest major intersection is Queen and Dufferin. Closest parking is a block west in the Green P lot at 1325 Queen Street West.


This is a curated market and will be open to artisans and artists whose wares may appeal to folks of a dark or alternative nature, or that doesn’t really fit into the mainstream.

While our selection process will prioritize handmade items, we will also consider artists selling works of their own art manufactured by a third party (e.g. books or graphic novels; music media and related promotional items such as t-shirts; or functional art where the artist’s work is printed onto items such as clothing and accessories, housewares, etc.).

We’re looking for makers of clothing, jewelry and accessories, housewares, toys, decor items, textiles and fabric art, pet stuff, books and zines, records and other music media, pins, patches and stickers, and anything generally considered weird and wonderful.
