Pier Street Farmer’s Market
The Pier Street Market is a seasonal institution in Campbell River, drawing patrons and vendors from all around Vancouver Island every Sunday from May to September. It is a “must see” for anyone visiting the area. The market is a popular community affair; special event weekends even attract thousands of visitors making it an inclusive and multicultural attraction. Shared experiences await young at heart visitors with fun and authentic free exploration. With a menu of choices of hot food and live music, it’s the perfect environment for free and easy sampling. A special Pier Street market occurs indoors in December for Christmas and relocates to the Foreshore – Robert V. Ostler Park for the annual Canada Day Celebrations. Examples of items available for sale are homemade wares, arts and crafts, and fresh produce.
The market is surrounded by the stunning scenery of Discovery Passage, Fisherman’s Wharf, Discovery Fishing Pier and Maritime Heritage Centre. Visitors can enjoy a cultural immersive walk along the nicely rejuvenated Pier Street, the historic soul of Campbell River. Watch the sport fishermen on the Pier, visit the Maritime Heritage Centre, or relax on the pocket beach located right at the market. A menu of choices for all ages!
The Pier Street Farmers Market and Arts Fair is a “must see” for anyone visiting Campbell River. It is held every Sunday from 10 till 2:30 pm (first Sunday in May till last Sunday in September).
