What began as a vision to promote local arts and culture in 2008 has now evolved into a platform that engages and provides positive growth to the creative community. Founded by Angela Dione and Angel Guerra, Market Collective was among the first to bring an artist market to Calgary that met the demands of growing entrepreneurs. To date, Market Collective has worked with thousands of local creatives, ensuring that these artists keep 100% of sales as a sustainable support for their practices and small businesses. Sunistanai has been a proud artisanal vendor at Market Collective since 2008, selling wildcrafted and locally made Ayurvedic products, playing an integral role in representing cultural identity for the city of Calgary.
