A vibrant year-round community gathering place that fosters sustainability for the Town of Gibsons, neighbouring islands and Sunshine Coast residents and visitors
In search of authentic connections? The public market is a gathering place that promotes learning and making healthy lifestyle choices…with a local twist. Here you get to meet the people from our community who grow, harvest and prepare your food.
In addition to becoming a destination to reconnect with friends and neighbours, the public market sets the stage for rich conversations and learning about healthy nutrition and food sources–including the exploration of Howe Sound through the Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre. The phased opening for the center will begin in Summer 2017.
Our permanent local merchants and bistro are open year-round, Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Starting May 30th, Emelle’s Catering Market Bistro is open at 9 a.m. for brunch.
The outdoor Friday Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market runs until October 6th from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Our premium vendors this year are Persephone Brewing Co., Roundtable Farms and Artisans Way Organics. You will find their delicious and fresh products every week
The public market is a partnership between the Community Futures Development Corporation, Town of Gibsons, Sunshine Coast Community Foundation and the Gibsons Community Building Society. The GCBS, a not-for-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors and a Board of Governors, is the operator of the Gibsons Public Market.
