The Third World Bazaar is a family business that purchases products from around the developing world and sells directly to consumers in the Manotick Station (south of Ottawa). The Bazaar is operated over a seven weekend period, when our products are sold in a large barn, with a festive atmosphere. We bring to our customers a wide range of exotic and interesting treasures; home decor, jewelry, clothing, musical instruments, art, furniture, and much more. Wherever possible, the owners purchase directly from the artisans and producers.
The Third World Bazaar is a family operated business, run by Peggy & Dick Bakker, together with their children; Case and Anneka. Up to 2003, the business had been operated in Seeley’s Bay (Kingston area) by Paul and Evelyn Gervan (Peggy’s brother). In 2004 the business moved to Manotick Station, but with the same model of direct purchasing and destination, event retailing.
The business is situated next to Bakker’s General Store, where you can find a wide range of European deli products and wonderful food.
