Visit the Gibsons Public Market
Our Community’s Gathering Place
A warm and inviting community gathering place featuring local food merchants, an award-winning bistro, a collect-and-release aquarium, along with 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 also want to provide a connection to our ocean through the Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre, a catch-and-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!

Connection to the Coast
It’s all about connection! Connecting with others and building a sense of community. Connecting with nature and and connecting with nature. We know that our coastlines are sacred. That is why we want to connect you to what is under the waters of Howe Sound with the Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre.
Meet our People
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 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.

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.

I love the energy and vibe of the Market and the quality of the merchants. The opportunity to finally start my own business and bring quality miso food to the community has been wonderful. I love working in such a vibrant place.

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.
