DON’T MISS:

Come to the Information Booth for free market money transactions (this Saturday only)! This is a way of saying thanks for your understanding about cancelling the market last weekend due to the threatening forecast of stormy weather.

ChopSwap is a community campaign that helps turn local restaurants and their customers into zero-waste heroes, and they will have a station at the market this Saturday! Pay them a visit to swap your disposable chopsticks for a pair of reusable ones! All swapped + reclaimed chopsticks will be donated to local school arts programs, crafters and other creative initiatives (or sent to compost).


TIME & LOCATION:

Every Saturday 9AM – 2PM at 1100 Comox St on beautiful Nelson Park!
