Our first contact with the Market was a tour offered by Georgy Good when the Market was nearing completion. We were impressed by the vision of the market as a community hub and a gathering place which could host a variety of activities.
I quit my office job to live the dream and start a bakery. I never thought the best part of owning my own business would be the customers.

Gibsons so needed a place like this- A vibrant mix of local, fresh artisans and farmers joining together to create an eclectic community market. The live music is top notch too.

Great local hub with fresh foods and activities for the kids. Definitely worth checking out as a local or tourist 💎

I love seeing the regulars. The people who come in every week and enjoy a meal at Emelle’s and then head downstairs to pick up their groceries. It's nice to be that place where they can relax.

The three days our daughter spent at camp was the best three days of fun and education she has had in a while... I loved hearing the excitement in her voice.

Even better than I expected. Every shop is unique and authentic to the area. Delicious food in the eatery. Plus a state of the art marine education center. Can't wait to be back!

Working at the GPM is truly like being part of a second family. Everyone is kind and welcoming, the atmosphere is warm and happy, and the food is always delicious! I’ve learned so much working here, and I’m excited to learn even more.
We were lucky enough to have our wedding reception at the Gibsons Public Market. The space is absolutely stunning with vaulted ceilings, big windows, and a large glowing fish tank. Our photos are exceptional! The staff are kind, attentive and keen to make every detail perfect for a flawless wedding. We couldn’t have dreamed of a better venue for our wedding.
It truly was a perfect day and we can’t thank or recommend the Gibsons Public Market enough!
