Salt Spring Island is an area of BC that I have yet to discover.
I have a friend who lives there and says that moving there was a fantastic decision for her family.
I love how there seems to be a great sense of community and more care-free way of living. We’ve been to local markets, on BC Ferries and shopped in unique retailers that carry products made on Salt Spring. There are so many AMAZING artisans who call it their home.
A Piece of Bohemia Comes to Vancouver March 27 to 29th.
For its second year, Salt Spring in the City – a kind of village market meets art show – returns to Vancouver March 27 to 29th to showcase the treasures and flavours of the Salish Sea. Visitors to Vancouver’s Heritage Hall will get to experience food and fashion, paintings and pottery, wine and crafts, and a sense of nostalgia for the West Coast’s homesteading, handcrafted bohemian heritage.
At this now-annual fair-atmosphere event, Vancouverites get to discover the wares of woodworkers, designers, jewellers and potters, artisanal cheesemakers and preservers, weavers and painters, artists and foodies.
Admission is $3 for adults, and $1 for kids — with partial proceeds going to Save-On-Meats’ Sandwich Token Program, which helps those in need.
Salt Spring in the City will take over Heritage Hall (3102 Main Street) on Friday, March 27, 4-9pm, Saturday, March 28, 10am-6pm and on Sunday, March 29, from 10am-5pm.
*The first 25 people through the door everyday will get an awesome gift bag filled with Salt Spring Island goodies.
FREE COFFEE will be provided by Salt Spring Coffee for the duration of the event.
