Sitting across the new Johnson St bridge is something old. The E&N rail yard is a historic site that allows locals to remember a simpler time. These buildings are anything but simple.
Built with old-growth beams from the 1800s and colourful red bricks for the facade These buildings create an inviting environment for the curious. This Holiday season it is also a beautiful space for the Nomad Holiday Market.
The Nomad Holiday Market brings Artist from all over Vancouver Island. These fine makers use their creative talents to create works of beauty for the eyes and sometimes tummies. There will be Disterleirs, foodies, crafts, and art. We have some food trucks and live entertainment from local talent.
Located on the E&N property is an old red rail car. This year we are working with the cool-aid society to fill it full of food and warm clothing for the people that need it. It will be open for the duration of the event. Even if you don't want to shop please bring by a donation. Last year we gathered over 2000 lbs of food and 3000.00 in cash and inkind donations to the Salvation Army. Lets see if we can beat that number. Information about the event can be found at Here or on Facebook @ nomad market events.
