Qualicum Beach market variety

Every year, the Qualicum Beach Downtown Business Association’s market became bigger and better.

We looked forward to a Thursday night of music and browsing. Every year, the Qualicum Beach Downtown Business Association’s market became bigger and better, as people became aware of our beautiful little town.

So, what happened to put an end to our Thursday night market? I for one would have loved to have had the farmers market and the street market combine for the one evening a week, as well as looking forward to the regular Saturday market. More choices in a market equate to more people coming to shop and enjoy the evening.

We recently holidayed in Penticton. We went to the Penticton Saturday street/farm market. We enjoyed the selection and the vibrancy, coming home with fresh farm products and some interesting crafts and goods. It is a very successful, fun, vibrant market with everyone working together to make it that way.

Does Qualicum Beach not have that ‘working together’ attitude? It seems our neighbour, Parksville does.
