Before there was the Ship Point Market there was a loading ramp and docs. The market has definitely attracted more people to the area to enjoy the waterfront.
The City of Victoria and GVHA have invested into the pier to keep it alive and safe. Once this is done great things can happen once again on the pier.
On the other side of the harbour there is a group of historical buildings that are part of the E&N Railroad. This area is slated to become a marketplace by Bayview Properties, which is doing an amazing job at helping to shape a community. This Holiday season the Roundhouse is hosting it's 1st Holiday Market.
November 30, December 1st and 2nd are the dates of this event. Over 60 talented makers and artists will come together to help you celebrate this festival season by giving you the opportunity to buy local and handmade. You can't buy this in the malls or big box stores. MORE INFO HERE
Hours of operation:
Friday November 30th, 4 to 8 pm
Saturday December 1st, 10 to 8 pm
