A warm and inviting community gathering place featuring local food merchants, an award-winning bistro, a collect-hold-release aquarium, and engaging community programs and events.
We are a public market located in lower Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia.
We know the amazing power that food has to bring people together. Our bustling public market features six merchants and an award-winning bistro providing a variety of fresh, local food since 2017. Each locally owned business is independently operated and provides the best that the Sunshine Coast has to offer. From spot prawns to burgers, we have it all.
Our vision is to create a vibrant hub of Coastal life. We do this by hosting some of the Sunshine Coast’s best events and bringing people together. We alsoprovide a connection to our ocean through the Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre, a collect-hold-release aquarium located at Gibsons Public Market.
We hope to see you soon for a cooking class, a bite to eat, or simply catching up with friends!
