Summer by the Sea Street Market

The Summer by the Sea Street Market began in 2004 and was made up primarily of Craig Street merchants. It was designed to bring awareness to the local retail shopping district in Parksville. At that time, the market was quaint and self-contained to one short city block. The huge success and following of the market has helped grow it into a thriving village of it's own Tuesday evenings each summer, now spreading over five city blocks. Starting the second Tuesday in June through to the last Tuesday in August, Parksville business owners and traveling vendors from all over Vancouver Island unite to transform the Craig Street into a bustling collage of excitement. An abundant selection of local restaurants and food vendors provide enticing dining options. Artists, photographers, authors, wood and metal crafters, jewelers, massage therapists, fortune tellers, bakers, farmers, sewers, knitters, hobbyists, entrepreneurs, merchants, and community organizations add up to more than180 on-site vendors. As a visitor to the market, you will find quality handmade and commercial goods here, everything from children's clothing and toys; pet products; hobby and kitchen tools and gadgets; fashion wares and accessories; up-cycled wares from reclaimed materials; local art, home decor and furnishings; bags, baskets and fibre products; fitness, beauty, skincare and health products; spiritual readings; metaphysical supplies; temporary tattoos; baked goods; fresh produce, plants and fresh flowers; sauces, spices and preserves; teas, juices and soup mixes; candy, ice cream and treats galore, and so much more. We urge you to join in the fun and put this high up on your list of things to do this summer. Interested vendors are welcome to submit an application starting in March through the Parksville Chamber office or on-line at parksvillechamber.com under Events. More details are to follow.

The Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce organizes this annual summer event. From mid June to the end of August, every Tuesday, 6pm to dusk, Craig Street in Parksville, BC transforms into an exciting market of more than 180 merchants and vendors.
