Market Season is NOW

Our hard-working, local vendors are eager to serve you!  See you at the market at the Saanich Fairgrounds every Saturday morning from 9:00am – 1:00pm.

“THOSE SUMMER NIGHTS!”

In addition to the long-standing Saturday morning market, 2021 will see Wednesday evenings back in July and August due to popular demand.

We are very excited to announce that we are expanding your market shopping and eating opportunities to Wednesdays from 4:00 – 8:00pm from July 7th to August 25th.  Come on up to see your favourite vendors selling their locally made, baked or grown products as well as the addition of some of your favourite dinner-time FOOD TRUCKS!  The long-standing and very popular Saturday morning 9:00am – 1:00pm market will continue on as usual beginning June 5th until the Thanksgiving weekend, October 9th.

Covid-19 Market Update

Greetings to our wonderful community!  Our vendors are excited to serve you in the wide-open outdoor space with grass underfoot, and with modifications in place to keep everyone safe during these somewhat uncertain times of Covid-19.
Normally, the market is a wonderful place to meet up with friends, family and neighbours BUT during these Covid times, we are not able to gather.  To this end, we aren’t offering the wonderful live music that we are used to but we do have some enjoyable music playing in the background.  Vendors must be spaced apart or have walls up between themselves and have line-up markers in place, similar to what we are used to seeing in retail stores.  Also, we are not able to offer tables and chairs but we encourage you to stroll with your food while you shop and take it home to enjoy!
Please don’t let these precautions discourage you from supporting our local farmers, creators and artisans!  They are all really excited to see all of your happy faces again, even if it is just your eyes beaming above your face covering!  We are all SO looking forward to serving you out in the beautiful fresh air.  See you soon!
Other changes:
– all persons must wear a face covering (unless an acceptable condition exists)
– admittance will be denied to anyone displaying symptoms of illness
– market traffic must flow in a one-way pattern (if you have time, circle around once before purchasing!)
– bank machine will not be available
– there will be plenty of opportunities to hand sanitize
– no touching product unless you intend to purchase it
– your personal bags can only touch yourself and the ground

A community treasure…

We take pride in being not only a great market, but a community gathering place with great music, grass under-foot and… woof! we’re dog friendly! We appreciate the customers who support the market each week and the vendors for bringing their time, energy and products to the field every Saturday. The Peninsula Country Market also supports community non-profit groups by providing no-cost space rental to promote your activities. Contact the Market Manager at info@peninsulacountrymarket.ca for full details.

Drive, Walk, Cycle, Bus or Ride to Market!
