Island of the Arts

By Linda Tancs

In the Gulf Islands of British Columbia on Canada’s west coast you’ll find Canada’s best loved outdoor market on Salt Spring Island.  Internationally known, Saturday’s Market in the Park features over 100 artists, writers, musicians and farmers, showcasing their handiwork under the market rule of “make it, bake it or grow it.”  The world-class artistry exhibited at this seasonal event has garnered the island the moniker “island of the arts.” The market  takes place weekly on Saturdays from April through October in Centennial Park and in the adjacent parking area in downtown Ganges.
