When the Tuesday market does open it will be following the recommendations from the BC Health guidelines in place at the time regarding COVID-19. The Province has designated farmers’ markets as an essential service, but has limited them to food and beverage sales, with specific restrictions. They are a place to access food, not for groups to gather.
In the meantime, you can still support our local farmers through their Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA Box program) and through Farm Stands.
Also, the Salt Spring Community Market Society is launching an online food hub to provide Salt Spring residents with the ability to order local food online. This hub can be found at: https://www.localline.ca/salt-spring-community-market
