Vancouver Island’s first curated Grow, Bake, and Handmade Show. We are passionate about supporting a thriving local market in food, garden and handmade goods.

Our inaugural Spring Kick Off event on March 30th & March 31st 2018 was a huge success with over 18,000 people walking through the mall, we hosted over 70 vendors plus many more in our POP UP Shop. Hosted at beautiful Nanaimo North Town Centre, we had the Wave 102.3 onsite, food trucks, and local wine, beer and spirits sales. Vancouver Island came out to support our local growers, bakers and makers!

At Vancouver Island Market we are committed to bringing the best of Vancouver Island’s growers, bakers, and makers to our local community. Working together with the support of our partners and vendors Vancouver Island Market will provide educational workshops, where the community can learn new creative skills while caring for environment through the practice of upcycling, shopping and eating local.
