We operate under the BC Farmers Market Association mandate: “Make it, Bake it, Grow it.” The “Make it, Bake it, Grow it” motto allows you to be assured of Hornby Island quality and diversity at its best. The market has grown over the years into one of Hornby’s most cherished summer experiences.
Who Are We?
We’re a vibrant group of growers, home-bakers, hand-makers, artisans, and painters. Most of us are long-term residents who have spent many years exploring, developing and perfecting our craft. We are proud to bring you our harvest, the best from Hornby’s farms and studios, kitchens and gardens.
Here are just a few of the many offerings you can find at the Hornby Farmers Market.
From the soil, picked early in the morning, the freshest of what’s in season: vegetables, fruit, flowers, and herbs, all spray-free and naturally grown. And from our nurseries, you’ll find all sorts of perennials, shrubs, baskets, and bedding plants.
Hungry yet? From the traditional to the exotic, we have quite the choice! You can stay for lunch or find something to take away for a picnic.
Home-made international breads, pastries, cookies and cakes, eclectic jams, preserves, pickles and spreads prepared from our gourmets’ inventive recipes.
One-of-a-kind silverwork, whimsical bead craft, not just your average kind of things.
From the abstract to the practical, you can find pots, tableware and fanciful art pieces.
From the fleece: spinning, dying, knitting, and felting. T-shirts, designer clothing and unexpected accessories. Puppets with a purpose.
Painting/Mixed Media/Fine Art
A glimpse into our inner world. From folk-art to classic, we’re the home of many well-known and new artists.
Hand-painted, pressed flowers, mix-media, kid-art.
It may look easy but it takes a special eye. See our world through our lenses.
Handmade soaps, body lotions, herbal potions, henna’d hands. Relax, have a massage, treat your feet to a reflexology session.
Hornby has serious talent. Performance artists, wandering minstrels…you’ve never been to a market quite like ours!
