SALT SPRING ISLAND OPEN AIR MARKET VISIT

Yesterday we headed to Salt Spring Island for their Saturday Open Air Market. Salt Spring’s Open Air Market is rated one of the Best in Canada.

Weather was great, Sunny, but not too Hot. We arrived at the Ferry Terminal about 9:25 am  for the 10 am  sailing...and we soon found nearly 100 other cars ahead of us..

Yes we missed the 10 am Sailing and we waited two hours for a Noon sailing to Salt Spring.Salt Spring Island Open Air Market


The wait was worth it, our trip by Ferry was only about 25 minutes to Fulford Harbour on Salt Spring Island. Then a 20 minute Drive to Ganges where the main town is and the Saturday Open Air Market.

Market Vendors were offering, Food, Crafts, Art, Jewelry, Home made Clothing, Jams, Spices, Fresh Veggies Fresh Bakery goods, treasures,and Much more...


We stopped for a homemade European Hot Dog...mmmm...


Enjoy a day on Salt Spring and plan it for a Saturday during the Summer to go to their Open Air Market.

Here ‘s my short slide show of the Waterfront and Their Saturday Open Air Market on Salt Spring Island.

Fred - I haven't been to Salt Spring Island in years.  Your slide show has inspired me to make an effort to get to the market one Saturday this summer.  What a beautiful spot.  Glad you went yesterday, with the beautiful weather, and not today (with the not so beautiful weather!).

Those are wonderful scenes, Fred!  I am a huge fan of Farmer's or Open Air Markets.  This time of year often provides perfect weather to enjoy along with them.

Fred - waiting for a ferry can be exasperating what do you do to fill the time during your 2 hour wait ..... farmers markets are always on our to-do list whenever we day trip or visit a new community
