The Salt Spring Island Saturday Market Society (SSISMS) is happy to announce that the Salt Spring Saturday Market will be managed by SSISMS, effective January 1, 2024.
This commences an exciting new chapter where the Saturday Market is a community led initiative, steered by a committed group of community members. The nine-member board of directors consists of Salt Spring residents with strong backgrounds in diverse areas who are keen to support this project.
SSISMS looks forward to the opening of the market season and to seeing you at the first market of the year on Easter weekend, Saturday March 30. The market philosophies of ‘Make It, Bake It, Grow It’ as well as ‘Vendor Produced and Sold’ will remain the same. The regular market season will also remain the same as previous years - operating through to the end of October and with at least two December markets around the holiday season.
SSISMS is seeking a Market Coordinator for the 2024 season. Please look for details in the Gulf Islands Driftwood, the Salt Spring Exchange and at saltspringmarket.com to apply for this position. Vendor registration will open online, beginning in February (date TBD).
Thank you to everyone in the community for supporting the Salt Spring Island Saturday Market Society’s successful application to the CRD. We look forward to the years to come and continuing to make the Saturday Market a successful contributor to our local island economy.
All EXISTING and NEW market vendors must register their contact information at here to receive all market news including this year’s Saturday Market Vendor Registration Form.
