“This is wonderful market to attend, both as vendor and as shopper, it's very well organized, entertaining and the space and location are just perfect. Five stars for VIM market from me!”- Roxana Gonzalez


“Thank you to Vancouver Island Market for providing a venue, promotion, and support to the local crafting industry. Part of adapting to climate change means rebuilding our local economy around sustainable, locally grown, and handcrafted small businesses. I would encourage all Nanaimo folk to CHOOSE to support the VIM community instead of an impersonal import economy. I look forward to every event they hold because each one has exceeded expectations so far.”- Chris Brown


“There are so many choices and seeing what the Island has to offer. There are many creative people. It's wonderful enthusiasm and great shopping inside.”- Linda Holford
