Parksville Museum, farmers’ market opens Friday

Market runs every friday from 4-7 p.m.

The Parksville Museum and farmer’s market is opening Friday for the summer season.

The summer season runs from May 26 to Sept. 15.

The museum, located at 1245 East Island Hwy., is open Tuesday to Sunday each week from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. while the farmers’ market runs Fridays from 4-7 p.m.

Opening night for the market includes live music from Paul and Jess in the 1942 heritage Parksville Volunteer Fire Department hall.

The market, which takes place on the museum grounds, is free and family friendly and visitors are able to explore the Parksville Museum and its heritage buildings, as well as see live blacksmith demos. Since the market started in 2014, there has been a selection of local farm-fresh produce, meats, honey, homemade preserves, plants, baking, crafts and artwork.

On market days, since there is limited parking at the museum, there will be overflow parking at the Parksville Heritage Centre across Franklins Gull Road on Highway 19A.
