Vancouver Island Market kick off the holidays at Nanaimo North Town Centre

An exclusive 17 day pop up to countdown the days to our 2nd annual VI Winter Market.

Find dozens of artisan vendors at this unique Pop Up located next to Uptown Jewellery. Don’t miss the Grand Opening on November 15th from 5pm-9pm for refreshments, prizes, and more!

Lara has recently moved to the area from Boston, where she has had years of experience in craft market curation and management. Her projects have been written up in the Boston Globe and the Herald, and has made the local news.

The Pop Up Shop as well as the 4 day Gift Shop at our 2nd annual VI Winter Market is a risk free commission based retail space for vendors looking for additional sales outside of their market circuit during the upcoming holiday season.

Not all of the vendors at the Gift Shop will be at the Pop Up and vice versa so both experiences will be unique and exclusive you don’t wanna miss.

Here are just a handful of makers you can look forward to seeing. For last minute opportunities to the Pop Up or Gift Shop, you can email Lara at

    I am a silversmith in Powell River…looking to expand my market reach by perhaps selling on Vancouver Island next year. Interested in what Vancouver Island Market will put together for 2020.

      That sounds great. Please come to our market and see if we’re the right fit for you. Our application will be posted for 2020 soon!

    I was wondering if any vendors at the market are going to be selling Recipe Cards?
