While this is the last summer market before the Saanich Fair (there is no market on September 5 as the fair midway takes over the market field), please remember that we continue after the Saanich Fair on Saturday, September 12, and continues on through the Thanksgiving weekend (October 10). Music this Week: Barry Perrin.

There is a farmers-only market at the Saanich Fair but you need to pay admission to get into the Fair to access that market.
