Dave Harris One Man Band entertains on the last Saturday of August before the Saanich Fair. We take a break for the Saanich Fair over Labour Day weekend then return for our fall series of markets beginning on Saturday, September 8 and continuing through until Thanksgiving (October 6). You don’t have to miss any market music over the Saanich Fair weekend however! The market stage will be setup in the hunter jumper field in the northwest corner of the Fairground, part of a covered picnic area (just like our setup at the market). Market musicians Jeff Stevenson, Jukebox Junkies, Dave Harris One Man Band and Chris Newman and Blake Candy will be on stage.

The Saanichton Village Association is partnering with the Peninsula Country Market to present the 8th Annual Central Saanich Family Festival at the market this coming Saturday. Lots of fun for families. Come out and celebrate our community with games, inflatables from GAMES2U and Panorama Recreation and more! Music by Trio Raices (www.facebook.com/Guitarra Chilena). Trío Raíces began in Victoria in 2017 with a desire to promote and share music and culture from Latin America. This dynamic trio spans diverse regions of the Americas, from the Andes to the valleys, and from the Pacific to the Atlantic, exploring the diverse Latin American folkloric traditions. We hope to see you there! For more information visit www.saanichtonvillage.ca

Popular local musician Jeff Stevenson entertains on the market stage this weekend.  Jeff has a long and fascinating history in music and acting including playing one of the lead roles in the original 1969 Canadian production of the Broadway Musical “Hair” in Toronto!  Want to learn more Jeff? Visit his Facebook page (www.facebook.com/JeffStevensonLive/). Got tools or knives to sharpen? MidKnife Crisis is at the market this week.  Got pets?  Marsco Canine Crunchies and Missy Catnip are on the field.  Grater Whey, Sayward Lea Preserves, Van Isle Apiaries and Coastal Honey are back with us too! We’re also looking forward to seeing Captain Pete at the market.  It might be this week – we’ll let you know!

It’ll be a berry good day at the market again this Saturday – strawberries, tayberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, gooseberries, and currants!  I love our market from my head to-ma-toes – lots of tomatoes and fresh veg too. Looking for local protein for that special summer BBQ? Boughneath Farms (beef) and Country Wools (lamb) can satisfy your needs (still waiting to hear from Captain Pete). Bill Johnson, a local bluesman with an international following, graces our stage on Saturday.  “He’s an unsung hero of Canada’s  blues and roots music scene” (Holgar Petersen, CBC Radio, Stoney Plain Records). Want to learn more about Bill and his music? Visit his website at www.billjohnsonblues.com. Every Saturday morning, 9am – 1pm, Saanich Fairground, June – Thanksgiving weekend.

Looking forward to a fascinating day at the market! We’re trying something new today – Yoga with Liv on the grass in front of the stage for adults from 9:15 to 10:00 and kids from about 11:00am to 11:30. “These classes are free and no experience is necessary, just bring a mat and a smile!” All the usual good things including fresh juicy local strawberries and lots of yummy baking (breads, pies, strudels, sticky buns, muffins and more). Brad Prevedoros plays on the stage. Visit our vendor page and check out his music under Music category or visit this week’s market map (in progress) and click on the number on the stage.
