The Bastion Square Public Market is a colourful open-air market that brings a vibrancy to Bastion Square with its wonderful array of locally produced arts, crafts, and entertainment. Watch artisans as they create their crafts, or sit and enjoy the market atmosphere at one of the local outdoor cafes.
Open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 11:00am to 5:30pm, May through September.
Also, the former Government Street Sunday Market and its Farmers Market has moved to Bastion Square and Langley Street on Sundays. This market offers an eclectic mix of arts, crafts, imports, and entertainment. The Farmers Market features locally grown produce; homemade breads and pastries; preserves, chutneys, and relishes; free-range eggs; and authentic Mexican food. In the summer of 2013, the market hosted an Art Walk on Langley Street. The new event is designed to profile local artists of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.
The Sunday market is open on Sundays, 11:00am to 4:30pm, May through September.
