    A must visit while on the island. The market is full of custom jewellers, interesting art pieces, and clothing. It was great to walk around and check out, although it had much less vendors then I was expecting. It also didn't offer much food food choices. 1-2 hours is plenty of time to see it all.

    A must for Saltspring visitors the market has some very unique stalls such as a banjo stall and an amazing gyoza stand. Also found some a good French patisserie.

    If coming to Salt Spring Island you must ensure you're here over a Saturday - the market is one of the best parts of the island. People are so friendly, products are incredible and the vibe is wonderful. Not to be missed!

    The artisan Salt Spring Market has some very unique pieces that you cannot find at other market in the lower mainland. The people in Salt Spring are very friendly. They will take their time to introduce their arts. It's a must visit event!
