Mayor Weinberger Announces the Return of the BTV Market this Summer

Burlington, Vt. – Today, Mayor Weinberger announced the return of the BTV Market to City Hall Park after a resoundingly popular inaugural season in the summer of 2022. Co-presented by Burlington City Arts and Love Burlington, the BTV Market begins in City Hall Park on Saturday, June 3, and runs 11 am-3 pm every Saturday throughout the summer. 

“The BTV Market is a weekly celebration of Burlington’s talent and variety every Saturday throughout the summer,” said Mayor Miro Weinberger. “The Market creates a joyful space for families, neighbors, and visitors to gather and enjoy a broad spectrum of local artists, creative small businesses, good food, and great music right in City Hall Park.”    

The Market features a rotating lineup of over 120 vendors, with 50 booths selling wares each week in the park. In addition to an array of artists, makers, bakers, and more representing all communities within Burlington, the Market features live tunes from BCA’s Market Music series, lawn games, vendors, and the splash fountain. The kickoff market for 2023 will feature Market Music by Cam Gilmour Trio, as part of BCA’s Jazz Lab programming. 

“BCA is so excited to bring such a tremendous array of talent to City Hall Park each weekend, helping to activate a crucial community space in the heart of downtown Burlington. Not only is the Market wonderful for supporting Burlington’s creative economy, but it likewise provides underserved artists and vendors a means to meet new audiences and gain invaluable business experience,” says BCA Executive Director Doreen Kraft.  

 “This market is not only a vibrant activation of one of the City’s most important public spaces, but it also serves as the first step in our micro-business incubator program,” said Kara Alnasrawi, the City’s Director of Business and Workforce Development. “The smallest of Burlington’s businesses can access the busy customer base in our downtown and take the first steps towards growing into a viable business”. 

The final market will be on Saturday, September 30. To see a full list of upcoming City events and programming in City Hall Park, visit
