Do you like organic farm fresh eggs, fresh-baked breads and pastries, and uniquely handcrafted goods such as jewellery, scarves, textiles, and sweet-smelling soaps? You are in luck! Steveston’s Winter Market takes place this weekend in the Gulf of Georgia Cannery from 10 am to 3 pm. Support your local farmers and artisans; come by and pick up quality foods for the week, or find that special gift you’ve been looking for.
Winter markets take place every second Sunday inside the Cannery. The remaining dates are:
- February 19th
- March 4th and 18th
- April 1st and 15th
The dates for the summer outdoor markets have also been determined. They are:
- May 20th
- June 3rd and 17th
- July 15th and 29th
- August 5th and 19th
- September 2nd, 16th and 30th
While you are visiting the indoor market, check out the Tin Can Challenge. Steveston and Richmond youth have come together to build sculptures out of tin cans. At the end of February, the projects will be taken down and the non-perishables donated to the Richmond Food Bank. Before they do, bring a food donation and receive two for one entry into the Cannery, try your hand at building a sculpture, and vote for your favourite project.
