Indoor farmers market in QB stays until Dec. 8

Qualicum Beach market to move to bus garage site to make room for craft fair

Qualicum Beach Farmers Market president Bobbie Garnons-Williams.

Bobbie Garnons-Williams would like to see the Qualicum Beach Farmers Market run all year long, but right now she said she’s content to wind things up in December.

The market president said the indoor market in Qualicum Beach is going well this year, particularly after organizers changed the  hours to be consistent with the summer market schedule.

“People don’t like to change their routines,” she said, noting however the whole operation will move outdoors from its usual indoor Saturday setting at the Qualicum Beach Community Hall to the old bus garage parking lot on Nov. 24, in order to make way for the long-running Christmas craft fair.

Overall, she said, traffic has been coming in, although, as expected, not in as high numbers as on a hot, summer day.


With the exception of the one day in November, the market will continue on Saturdays at the hall until Dec. 8. After that, organizers and producers will have until March to prepare for next year’s markets.
