The Vancity Maker’s Summer Market

By | News & Updates | No Comments

This market was our first market ever and took place on Friday, August 19th and Saturday August 20th, 2016.  It was a lot of work, even more fun, and a huge learning experience.  Connecting with like-minded vendors and creators was amazing, as was having our Instagram followers come up and introduce themselves. It was hard to know how much to produce and sell but we were pretty on point as we came seriously close to selling out!  The most popular flavours at this market were our Tantalizer – Truffle Pepper Blend, Caramel Crunch – Handcrafted Caramel and Dillicious – Dill & Herb.  It was a scorcher that weekend at The Albion Fairgrounds in Mapleridge, BC.  Tracy & Jzabel of the Vancity Makers were ever so prepared and provided ice cold water for all vendors all day long.  Popsi Gal was there to supply their naturally sweetened, dairy free popsicles which was an awesome way to beat the heat! Can’t wait for the rush of our fall markets to begin –  Click Here to see where else we will be PoPpiN’ up!

Here at The Popcorn Bar, we LOVE weddings!  They are definitely one of our favourite events to work at.  From the details to the ambiance, the wedding of Holly & Mani was a fairytale of an evening…and The Popcorn Bar was a serious hit.  The bride and groom had a private tasting with us in the stages of their wedding planning, and chose Holy Smoke – Smoky BBQ, Dillicious – Dill & Herb, Tantalizer – Truffle Blend, Sweet Celebrations – White Chocolate Sprinke and Nirvana – Indian Spice Blend.  As soon as the gorgeous ceremony was over, guests flocked to the popcorn and it was thoroughly enjoyed during cocktail hour.  After dinner, it made for the perfect dancefloor snack! Thank you to the beautiful newlyweds for including us in on their special day.

The Museum of Vancouver x Honda Celebration of Light

By | News & Updates | No Comments

This summer has been seriously PoPpiN’ for us!  We were asked by The Museum of Vancouver to be a vendor at their Celebration of Light viewing party on July 27th, 2016.  It was such an honour to be set up at one of the most beautiful locations in the city on such a big night!  We sampled and offered eight handcrafted specialties, with Nirvana – Indian Spice Blend, being the top seller of the evening.  It is always interesting how the most popular flavour of our events is ever-changing! I always find it hard to answer when people ask my favourite flavour, as it completely depends on my mood (though I have a soft spot for anything savoury)!  We are looking forward to partnering with MOV again and working together in the future!

Vancity Blogger’s Party

We were so excited when Vancity Business Babes invited us to be a part of their event, the Vancity Blogger’s Party, and knew it was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up!  On July 11th, The Popcorn Bar set off to Sky Hangar, a stunning, elegant event space in Pitt Meadows that also happens to be the home of Sky Helicopters and MODE Studios.  It was a beautiful evening of networking, a blogger panel, and “tea-mosas” by Once Upon a Tealeaf!  Other vendors included Paper and Parties, Simply Delish Soup and Salad, Made by Megan, Yantra Supply Co and Sewn Designs.  The fantastic blogger panel included YouTube bloggers ToThe9s, Monika Hibbs and Betheny Menzel.  We had so much fun meeting other bloggers and guests, sampling eight of our gourmet flavours, sharing our story and selling bags!  We sold out by the end of the night!
