Qualicum Beach market going strong

Errington might have bid adieu for the season, but there's lots more market action in Qualicum Beach

Although market season is winding down

The farmer’s market in Errington may have bid adieu for the season, but the market in Qualicum Beach is still going strong.

The market, located on Veterans’ Way in Qualicum Beach, continues in its current outdoors form until the Thanksgiving weekend, Oct. 10.

After that, said market manager Ruth Stratham, it carries on, albeit in new digs.

The winter market kicks off on Saturday, Oct. 15 in the community hall, right next door to its current location.

Because of scheduling considerations, she said, the market will relocate once again, this time to the civic centre for a three-day market, from November 25 to 27.

Once that major undertaking is over and done with, the market will once again move into the community hall, until the final market, slated to be held on Dec. 10.


Those who look forward to the weekly Saturday market won’t have to wait long, as the first of the indoor spring markets starts on March 3.
