The popular Salt Spring Market runs from the end of March until October every Saturday in downtown Ganges. You will find everything from organic produce to fine jewelry.
There are winery tours, a craft brewery and a cider brewery. You can drive yourself or take a tour with SaltSpring Tours.
One of our favourite activities is to spend an afternoon visiting one of our local farms. At Salt Spring Cheese you can visit with the goats on a tour through their barn and view workers putting together their many delicious varieties of cheese. Once you’ve toured the farm you can sample cheese in their shop, or buy some and sit on the patio to eat and enjoy the beautiful garden. They also sell hot and cold drinks and Fruitsicles, which are a favourite with Island children.
An impressive view can be found by driving up to Mt.Maxwell Provincial Park. It’s about a 20 minute drive from our property, some of it on dirt roads. Once at the top there is an amazing panorama of the South end of Salt Spring, Vancouver Island, even the San Juans.
