….be prepared to love this market.

 

Another great market this year brought to you by the Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce. Thousands of visitors and locals made the market a popular destination on Tuesday nights, 6 – 9pm from June 12 to August 28. The market has taken on its own personality over its 15 years and again this year it didn’t disappoint, as one of the most unique island experiences. Craig Street was filled with a vibrant energy and there was a great mix of vendors from local merchants, artisans, craftspeople, farmers, food trucks and don’t forget the live local entertainment. Chesapeake Shores personalities were spotted enjoying the market, 88.5 The Beach was onsite, the food trucks together made a convenient ‘food court’ of sorts. There were wineries, distilleries and cideries offering samples, cheesemakers, bakeries, candy, pretzels, gelato, popcorn, French fries, burgers, cotton candy, hot dogs, jams, pickles, dragon bowls, pizza and BBQ sauce, we could go on and on. We had belly dancers, flutists, guitarists, violinists and marimba music…each week brought something new.

There really is something for everyone!

 

Stay tuned, 2019 dates coming soon.

These discounts are for the cast and crew of Chesapeake Shores.
