PARKSVILLE STREET MARKET

Lineups at the food carts................
Streets shoulder to shoulder with shoppers
Craig Street Market bustling from one end to the other

CAN NANAIMO LEARN ANYTHING FROM PARKSVILLE?

This is the second time my wife and I have gone up to Parksville to check out their Tuesday Night Street Market and I must say we have been equally as impressed both times.

The sheer orgnanization is something to observe as an instant market springs up in short order when at least 100 (most likely many more) merchants set up their tents and set out their wares offering just about anything you can imagine, and some stuff you can't imagine.

The market officially opens at 6:00 pm and by 6:20 pm when we arrived the street was already crawling with shoppers. This was the last market of the season which is organized by the Parksville Chamber of Commerce.

What could Nanaimo learn from Parksville?
