...be prepared to love this market         

June 11 to August 27, 2019


Craig street infused with energy and excitement every Tuesday night! Brought to you by the Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce, this street market is a true reflection of our community's vibrant character.

In its 16th year, the Tuesday night market runs from 6 to 9pm with over 200 vendors to visit. The market is popular with locals and visitors looking for a unique experience. With an eclectic mix of local merchants, artisans, craftspeople, farmers, entertainers and of course food vendors, there really is something for everyone. Dinner at the market or one of our many downtown restaurants?  Why not? A variety of food with restaurants, vendors and food trucks offering everything from organic and vegan to comfort foods and ethnic options, all prepared onsite and freshly made for you! Whatever you decide, you are sure to find something to enjoy. You might also consider taking home some farm fresh produce to prepare your own feast. This year’s market is enjoying an increase in farm vendors providing us with the benefit of local and fresh options. 

Summer by the Sea Street Market is an economic benefit to the community. It helps to increase the number of visitors to Parksvilles downtown and is a great weekday event for those visiting the area. Come down and enjoy the Tuesday evening market while supporting local businesses, artisans and food producers.

Experience downtown Parksville like you never have before.

The Market runs from June 11 to August 27, 2019

The Market is officially SOLD OUT!
