One of my favourite places on the planet is bringing its talented artisans to Vancouver in March and I couldn’t be more excited. Salt Spring in the City will take place March 14th to March 16th at Heritage Hall on Main Street and will showcase the hottest artisans from this stunning island with over 30 unique brands to discover. From the modern to the rustic, chic to traditional — there will be something for everyone.

When Friday, March 14, 2014 from 9:00am to 4:00pm; Saturday, March 15, 2014 from 10:00am to 8:00pm; Sunday, March 16, 2014 from 10:00am to 5:00pm

Salt Spring’s artists’ creative talents are influenced and inspired by the island and for the first time we are coming together to bring that distinct flavour to Vancouver. Visitors to the show will have a unique opportunity to discover the best of what the island has to offer, as well as win an exciting array of prizes. Salt Spring in the City is more than just a market; it is an artist-run collaboration. We invite you to come and be a part of this dynamic and engaging show.
It’s hard to put into words how John and I feel about Salt Spring Island but every time we visit, and I do a write-up about our adventures, I certainly try to express how this magical place makes us feel. The bucolic island bursts with natural inspiration, from sheep gathering in a pasture to twisted Arbutus trees clinging to cliffs along rocky shores. You can completely disconnect — spending all day curled up by a fireplace or hiking past fairy doors in the forest — or you can head into the village and try the latest cocktail creations and catch a game on the big screen while sipping a local brew.
Artistic talent abounds and is celebrated everywhere you look. We are very lucky to have but a sampling of what this place has to offer, right here at the Salt Spring in the City event.
