Chamber excited about market’s new location

Mark Drysdale, manger of the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce, shares his excitement regarding a new venue for the Farmers Market.


We at the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce are so excited about our new venue for the Ladysmith Make It, Bake It, Grow It Market.

We moved from First Avenue down to Transfer Beach last Tuesday and already are receiving very positive comments from the vendors and the shoppers alike.

Imagine this: a warm day with a slight breeze coming in off the water, able to shop and take in such a beautiful view.

The parking is more than enough, we aren’t stopping traffic and everyone is happy to be there!

We encourage all Ladysmith residents and residents from the surrounding areas to come down to Transfer Beach each Tuesday from 3-7 p.m. and take it all in. We are the only farmers market that is actually on the beach on Vancouver Island.

Thanks to the Town of Ladysmith for helping to make the arrangements.

See you there!

Mark Drysdale

Manager, Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce
