It's that time of year again, time to start planning our 2017 market. The market will be held at the same location as last year which is 2734 Island View Rd. Saanichton. B.C. (turn right off of the Patricia Bay Highway as you are heading to Sidney) on a lovely farm with a big red barn on it.....such a pretty location!
It will be held on the same weekend in July (which is always the second last weekend of the month) and will remain a two day event:
- Saturday July 22nd 2017 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and
- Sunday July 23rd 2017 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
The entry fee for the public will be $3.00 per day or $5.00 for the two days. Children 12 and under get in free. There will also be lots of free parking on-site.
We have many of our wonderful previous vendors returning along with amazing new vendors all bringing an array of fabulous items such as refurbished furniture, antiques, vintage and upcycled home decor, handmade signs, handmade linens, handmade cushions, handmade soaps and lotions, paper goods, floral arrangements and so much more!
Note: If you are interested in being a vendor at our market this year please see the "Vendors Information/Application" section at top of this page.
So make sure you mark these dates on your calendar!
Looking forward to seeing you there!

A big thank you goes out to our very talented and inspiring vendors, "Married To The Dawg" Food Truck for serving up their delicious food, to "Mile Zero" and "Kelly Roxanne Girvan - Singer/Songwriter" for entertaining the public while they shopped, to our so very hard working and efficient volunteers and last but not least the "Boganes" family for allowing us once again the use of their beautiful farm for our market. It really is the most perfect setting for our event.
We are exhausted but thrilled to have had our best year to date. The public turn out and quality of our vendors were beyond expectation. Looking forward to doing it all again next year!

PS We will post more photos of the market soon so stay tuned!
