Small but good things come in small packages
Feb. 2021
I've visited this small public market a few times and often picked up an item or two in the downstairs food spots. I thought I'd post a review this time. There are several sections: baked goods, meats, cheeses, seafood. All have nice selections of different things. I bought a selection of cheeses this itme and have really enjoyed them. I bought baked goods there before, and was also very pleased. Nice fresh stuff!

Definitely Unique
Aug. 2020 • Family
This is a perfect visit for tourist looking for a flavour of unique in local experiences. It doesn’t deserve the low 3 star ratings. It has a gorgeous aquarium in the centre in which you can view what you could only see under the ocean otherwise. These salt water aquariums are not cheap on upkeep! There is also the aquatic museum only open on weekends.
Products sold by vendors are actually not any more expensive than any other establishment of this type. We bought different flavours of water kefir, pepperoni sticks - very reasonably priced at $2 each and the 5th one free - chocolate covered honeycomb, and organic pickles, again only $7.99, a great price for organic pickles. I did not like that the menu upstairs did not have prices on it though. I don’t eat at places that use that tactic on interested customers.

Specialty items off the beaten path
Sep. 2019
If you find yourself passing through Gibsons Landing this is a nice spot to pickup some specialty cheeses, meats etc. It has a bit ofeverything if you are visiting a B&B, and can add some specialty items to your stay.
Don't forget to go back behind the Market and enjoy a nice walk along the Marina with access to Lower Gibsons and all of the quaint shops.

A really nice idea. We had lunch upstairs and it was delicious. The bakery on the main floor is wonderful.

An option

Nice place to visit. Lots of food outlets: bakery, meat market, coffee bar, restaurant. A little out of the way but worth a visit

A very unique place!!
Jul. 2019 • Couples
Amazing place with many options for everyone! There is an aquarium inside which was pretty neat. The cheese and meats section was fantastic, which very knowledgeable employees. We enjoyed the popsicles, cheesecake on a stick and the very best iced earl grey ice tea. THE BEST. Im still thinking about the iced tea. The building is very rustic with a modern twist. The surrounding area is nice with the marina and a small garden. Perfect for snacking on some crazy red breads crackers and 10 year old cheddar!

everything is so expensive
Mar. 2019 • Couples
everything is expensive at this market; chocolate, seafood, meat, cheese and flowers. It is okay to visit once and have brunch/lunch but we would not bother to re-visit unless friends visiting ask us to take them there

Where the mountains meet the sea in peace.

I have travelled much on this world but Never have I seen or experienced such beauty, great laid back locals and just plain GOOD. Not easy to get to with the ferry and all, but well worth it.
