COMING UP: Salt Spring in the City (March 14-16)

“A Piece of Bohemia comes to Vancouver March 14 to 16

From the press release

Vancouver, BC — Vancouverites are about to discover what countless visitors from around the world already know. Salt Spring Island is B.C.’s worst kept secret, and finest treasure. For the first time ever, on March 14-16, Salt Spring in the City will bring the island’s bohemian lifestyle and fresh finds from its hottest artisans to Vancouver’s Heritage Hall (15th & Main). From the modern to the rustic, chic to traditional — with over 30 unique brands to discover, there’s something for everyone!

Nestled in the Strait of Georgia, between mainland British Columbia and Vancouver Island, Salt Spring Island is the largest and most visited of the Gulf Islands. It is particularly renown for its artisans, ranging from jewelers, to potters, clothing designers, painters, wine-makers, candle-makers, cheese-makers, preserve-makers, woodworkers, sculptors, writers, musicians, and even poets.  Their creative talents are influenced and inspired by the island and they have come together to bring that distinct flavour to Vancouver.


This March, Vancouverites will be let in on the secret and have a unique opportunity to discover the best of what the island has to offer in an indoor environment. But Salt Spring in the City is more than just a market, it is an artist-ran collaboration.

 Many of them exclusive to the island, the eclectic group of artisans to be showcased includes both craft and food artisans.

In the mood for something edible? Why not try small batch preserves from Salt Spring Kitchen Co., or a natural treat from Organic Gaia Foods ? You can also pick up a fine artisan vinegars from Salt Spring Savouries and East-meets-West spices from Monsoon Coast Trading Company. Thirsty? Pay a visit to Mt.
