The first Friday Farmers' Market at the new Gibsons Public Market is set for Friday, May 16.

Spring is in full swing at Gibsons Public Market.

Freshly planted flowers are coming to life, a new coat of paint is transforming the building, and fresh produce and artisanal products are arriving soon with a new farmers’ market. Everyone is invited to attend the Friday Farmers’ Market launching next Friday, May 16 from noon to 5 p.m.

“The Friday Farmers’ Market is an opportunity to shop locally, sample delicious food and visit with your neighbours,” said farmers’ market manager Celia Robben. “The market will feature local fruits and vegetables, wild seafood, eggs, home baking, preserves, chocolates and other delicious food options. Other items include local nature photography, gifted jewellers and carvers, and other talented Sunshine Coast artisans. There will be areas for customers to sit and enjoy the atmosphere along with live musical performances each week. The Coast’s own Rakish Angles will be the featured musical performer on May 16 opening day.”

Another feature will be a new pop-up café operating out of Gibsons Public Market on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A number of local farmers, food producers and artisans have already made commitments for the 22-week season running from the Victoria Day weekend until Thanksgiving.

Those interested in vending can contact or call 604-886-8814.
