Salt Spring Island's 
Saturday Market 

Visit Canada's best loved outdoor market. 

Each Saturday, from Easter weekend (or first Saturday in April) through the last Saturday
in October. From about 8:30am - 4pm, rain or shine.*  During summer months, watch for vendors setting up closer to 8am. 
Oceanside at Centennial Park in the heart of Ganges on Salt Spring Island, in the Gulf Islands of
British Columbia on Canada's west coast.  

For internationally acclaimed arts and crafts from Canada's "Island of the Arts". For potters, jewelers, fiber artists, woodworkers, and fine decorative arts. For farmstead cheeses, organic foods, music, and free festive fun. 

What's so special about this market? 
It's the Homespun Guarantee.
Vendors must "make it, bake it, or grow it" themselves, and all products must be "vendor produced and sold". These simple mandates are the essence of our market. Visitors are treated to local creations stemming from Salt Spring's unique brand
of "island ingenuity". Highest caliber creativity and production standards make Salt Spring Island home
to the greatest collection of artists in Canada.

Enjoy meeting more than 140 artisans and food producers who all contribute to Salt Spring's international reputation as a hotbed of world-class artists and organic farmers.  

note: extreme deluge, thunderstorms, gales, hail and/or snow, may restrict some artisan displays. Showers or continuous drizzle however, will not deter these vendors. They're a hardy lot.
