Are the vendors from the city of Milton only?

Most of our vendors are from the Halton region, however we do have a few vendors from cities across Southern Ontario.

I want to know more about an item before purchasing, is there a way I can contact the vendor?

Yes, absolutely. When you’re on the product page, click the shop’s name underneath the price. It will bring you to the seller’s profile page, where you will find a contact information, likely an email address to reach out to.

I placed an order. How do I know it went through? What happens next?

Thanks for your support with our Marketplace! You will receive an auto generated email from MCRC Marketplace/Shopify confirming the order has been placed and that your payment has been captured. You will then receive an email from the vendor to arrange shipping or local pick-up/drop-off details. All orders will be fulfilled (and make their way to you) by the vendor, outside of our Marketplace platform. If you do not hear from your vendor within a few days, please reach out to our admin: madelynb@mcrc.on.ca
