Seaside Pop Up market returns to Prince Rupert Saturday

This Saturday brings the return of a popular event from 2022, with the Kaien Island Seaside Pop Up Market making its return to the Cow Bay/Atlin Terminal area.

The popular event from last year is one that is Hosted by Ecotrust Canada, Tourism Prince Rupert, and Hecate Strait Employment Development Society, 

The marketplace will be once again be located at the Hecate Strait Lot on First Avenue East with the market running from 11AM to 2PM. 

Admission to the event is Free.

Shannon Lough, Ecotrust's Manager of Communications and Engagement highlights some of what you will find this Saturday.

The Kaien Island Seaside Pop-Up Market is returning to Prince Rupert, on Coast Ts’msyen Territory, Saturday, April 29, and will showcase local artisans, bakers, musicians, seedlings and seaweed fertilizer for local gardeners. 

The market will have seedlings and seaweed fertilizer full of beneficial nutrients such as magnesium, potassium, and nitrogen for local growers preparing for their gardening season. Attendees who bring their own containers can fill them with fertilizer for free. 

We recommend bringing a container that seals tight to avoid spills. We will also provide containers for a suggested donation of $5.
