The Third World Bazaar is a family business that purchases products from around the developing world and sells directly to consumers in the Ottawa area. We operate a Bazaar over a six week period where our products are sold in a large barn, with a festive atmosphere. We bring to our customers a wide range of exotic and interesting home décor, garden, musical instruments, art, furniture, and a wide range of other products.
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 the Kingston area by Paul and Evelyn Gervan (Peggy's brother). The new owners have carried on a similar business model of direct purchasing and direct retailing. Peggy and Dick are continuing to purchase from many of the same Artisans Paul and Evelyn had supported. The business is now situated next to Bakker's General Store which is operated by Henry Bakker (Dick's brother). Yes, lots of family involved here!
