There’s a free local artisan market happening in downtown Victoria this Saturday


Grab your Galentines—it’s market time!

This Saturday, February 4th, the Bay Centre is hosting their first monthly Meet the Makers’ Market—and you’re invited.

Join the all-female hive mind behind Market Collective along with over 40 local and handmade artisans the first Saturday of the month.

You’ll find the makers in Bay Centre’s centre court and on level 2 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the event is free to attend!

And don’t forget—you can enjoy 3-hours of FREE parking in the Bay Centre’s underground parkade.

Market-goers are encouraged to a bring non-perishable food, hygiene items, warm socks, toques and gloves to help supplement the important work our friends are doing at The Rainbow Kitchen & The Community Fridge.
