New Name and Hours For Downtown Market

Bastion Waterfront Farmers' Market
Pioneer Plaza (by Bastion)
Friday's 2:00 - 6:00 pm

Salutations Nanaimo Folk, Vancouver Islanders and visiting guests. Welcome to the Bastion Street Farmers Market 2015 Season! Starting May 15th, the market will be open every Friday from 2:00pm until 6:00pm. This market is located on Pioneer Plaza near the Historic Bastion on Nanaimo's Waterfront. This is the market's 18th year. Please join us this and every Friday until October.

The Bastion Street Market features local farmers and food producers so you can purchase your seasonal agricultural fruits and vegetables, bakery goods, meat, cheese, eggs, preserves, beer and wine, honey, coffee, tea, spices and more over the season.

The market will also have artisans selling soap, candles, clothing, leatherwork, woodwork, metalwork, jewelry, cloth work, photography, First Nations art, cards, and many special guests over the season.

We hope you choose to attend this market every week as the vendors aspire to develop a relationship with their valued patrons. Please support your local food growers and cottage industry artisans.

The market hours were changed this season with the hopes of making it more accessible to working folk and the neighbourhood.

Remember, money spent at the market is supporting the local economy and stays local!
