When:  Every Saturday, from either the first weekend in April or Easter weekend (whichever comes first) through the last Saturday in October. From approximately 9:00am - 4:00pm, rain or shine. During summer months, watch for vendors setting up closer to 8am.

Where: 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.

Why: For a fabulous day out! Browse internationally acclaimed arts and crafts from Canada's "Island of the Arts" including world class potters, jewellers, fibre artists, woodworkers, fine art & photography, body care, clothing and accessories, island tours and more. Enjoy live music and entertainment. And of course check out what started the market all those years ago - organic produce, farmstead cheeses, organic and delicious homemade snacks and food. Meet over 120 artisans and food producers who all contribute to Salt Spring's international reputation as a hotbed of world-class artists and organic farmers.

What's so special about this market? The homespun guarantee of course! 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". The highest calibre of creativity and production standards make Salt Spring Island home to the greatest collection of artists in Canada.   

BCSPCA Doggie DayCare is back at the Saturday market. This is a 1:1 dog sitting service to assist with caring for dogs while their families wander through the Saturday market. They run from 9am until 3pm until Sept 10. $10/hr (maximum of 2 hours).
Unfortunately, they can only take in as many dogs as we have volunteers at a given time so there may be a wait.
