Feeling the love big time this week with all the fabulous coverage we've been getting for Salt Spring in the City. My fellow show producers and I are so, so proud of this show that brings a little taste of our world-famous Salt Spring Saturday Market to the big city in Vancouver. If you can get yourself to Heritage Hall in Vancouver March 4-6, 2016 you'll be glad you did!

Holy cow! My favourite magazine profiled our show! Here's some of what editor Janine Vangool had to say (thanks, Janine!):
I love a good craft and art fair and there's one in Vancouver this weekend that I'd attend if I could. Salt Spring in the City brings artisans from Salt Spring Island into the big city to show and sell their wares. "Over thirty vendors have been invited to attend Salt Spring in the City," write the organizers, "It's a curated, pop-up village market, where the criteria for inclusion means the product must be designed, and produced on Salt Spring Island. The Vancouver showcase will include food and fashion, paintings and pottery, wine and crafts, and a sense of nostalgia for the West Coast’s homesteading practices. Visitors will discover the wares of woodworkers, designers, jewellers and potters, artisanal cheese makers and preservers, weavers and painters, artists and foodies."

VanCity Buzz is feeling the love for our show as well. Hurray! Here's what they had to say: This popular venture from Salt Spring Island is back for its third year, once again bringing with an array of crafts, art, and of course, food and drink. Look for award-winning cheese, small-batch jam, "wild untamed cider," elixers and tonics, and wines.

30 DAY ADVENTURES
We couldn't have said it better ourselves:
I love visiting Salt Spring Island. It has been names by the New York Times, "52 Places to Go in 2016" and "Canada's Coolest Island" by the Washington Post. If that isn't enough to get you over here for a weekend escape or a weeklong retreat how about the fact that the 10,000 people who call Salt Spring Island home all seem to be talented artists and craftsmen.
