With summer, market season has arrived! After an inspiring time in Europe, I am excited to connect with my customers in beautiful outdoor settings at various markets both on and off Vancouver Island. I love being outdoors, surrounded by nature and happy faces of festival attendees and musicians playing in the background. What could be better?

Here is a list of markets I will be at this summer:

July 10 - 18,  Granville Island Public Market, Vancouver
July 19 - 21, Harrison Festival, Harrison Hot Springs
Aug 2 - 5, Filberg Festival, Comox

Gabriola Farmers Market, Gabriola - various dates to be announced
Cedar Farmers Market, Cedar - various dates to be announced

Last week, I kicked off market-season at the Cedar Farmers’ Market. The market is at a new location in Cedar, BC (just South of Nanaimo) at Woodbank School, 1984 Woobank Road. It runs Sundays from 10am – 2pm, May through October and has a wonderful vibe.

Happy customer at last week's market in Cedar.

Celebrate Canada with us at the Ship Point Market in Victoria this coming weekend! We’ll be there from June 28th until July 1.

The Filberg Festival in Comox is my absolute favourite outdoor festival.  This year will be my 23rd year in a row in attendance.  Set amongst the majestic trees and gardens of the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park in Comox, on the east coast of Vancouver Island, the Filberg Festival is truly a spectacular event!

Thanks for reading, and make sure to say hi if you are coming to any of the above markets! I would love to see you, old customers and new!

She and Brian have deliberately kept Indian Summer Leather Design to an “artisan’s scale” in order to be involved in the entire process from creative design to placing her products into the hands of the women and men who will ultimately love her bags.
