Welcome to the new Mid-Island Public Market (previously Parksville Farmers Market). Please bear with us as we work on this website. New information, vendors, and events will be added as the days and weeks go by until our first market on May 6th, 2018!
The new market will be the vibrant gathering place for the mid-island community, with fresh organic produce from local farmers, artisan breads and cured meats, international foods and delicatessen, local artists, crafts, music and local wineries, breweries and distilleries. It'll be a celebration of local art, music, and mid-island businesses, who are excited to introduce themselves to you.
Our family friendly market will have special activities and events for kids of all ages, throughout the season.
When do we open?
The weekly market will open on the first Sunday of May (May 6th) and close at the end of September.
