Welcome to the Quadra Marketplace, a virtual showcase for the work and products of Island businesses, entrepreneuers, and artists. How it works A Marketplace is where sellers and buyers meet. A marketplace rents tables and booths to the sellers, and provides the grounds and advertising to gather the people to view the products. In a similar way, this electronic website provides those qualities and more. If you have something to sell, the Marketplace gives you the easy tools to list and maintain your own table, aka your web page. Really – it's as easy as filling out a form. See and be seen! We direct the people who visit this popular community website – www.thegumboot.ca – to come and view your products. Last year we had over 51,000 distinct visitors, and our numbers are growing steadily.
