The Bowser Magnolia Court Summer Market is gearing up for its third season this summer.

Bowser market is a ‘real mishmash of everything’ according to organizor

The market will kick off June 10-August 26 every Wednesday in Bowser

Flowers are blooming in Bowser and the community’s third annual summer market is getting ready to kick off next month.

The Bowser Magnolia Court Summer Market runs every Wednesday from June 10 to August 26.

“It’s a real mishmash of everything,” said organizer Corinne Roby, who started the market in 2012 after noticing a need in the community.

Roby said there will be baked goods, fresh fruits and vegetables, art and other products, only excluding used items. Additionally, organizers are expecting live entertainment every Wednesday.

Roby said she already has some interesting events lined up for the summer including: Peter Manson and Company music, free yoga on the lawn, tai chi demonstrations and the Rainbow Stew Cloggers are booked for July 29 and August 19 at 6 p.m.

“The whole idea is to get people in our shopping area in Bowser,” said Roby, noting it caters to locals, but also people passing through en route to Parksville or Courtenay.

Table rentals are $15 for drop-ins or $10 per table if you sign up for the whole season. All proceeds from table rentals are donated to a community organization. This year, Roby said proceeds will go to the Nile Creek Restoration Enhancement Society.

Roby said the market is small and intimate, like the community of Bowser itself.

“Generally we have about 30 to 35 people milling around and we have a fair amount of space,” she said. “A lot of the shops stay open late and we make sure we have some food vendors and options for drinks.”

For more information or to reserve a table contact Corinne Roby at 250-947-5231 or Sarah Hutchinson at 250-937-1879.

The Bowser Magnolia Court Summer Market will run from June 10 to August 26 every Wednesday except for July 1.
