Save the Dates, Live Music at our Market.
For those of you who have grown with us over the years, you will remember our Christmas Carolers who have joined us at our market every December, singing joyful music for all to enjoy at our market. We have had requests from the community to offer more time slots so they are able to experience the Christmas cheer amongst our busy December schedules.

Try it Friday November 23rd!
Join us at our market this Friday, Novemeber 23 from 12pm – 4pm to try freshly prepared smoked baby back ribs from a local favourite of ours, Johnston’s!
We love working with not only local businesses, but also alike businesses who have grown steadily over the years with their loyal customers and their employees.
Did you know Johnston’s was established in 1928 by Mr. Carmen Johnstone in Chilliwack, BC.? In the beginning, Johnston Packers offered custom processing services and employed only one full-time and one part-time employee. Eighty nine years later, Johnston’s is still in Chilliwack offering custom processing services, but now employs and supports over 120 families in the Fraser Valley.
Johnston’s remains a family-owned business today. Don Ball, Mr. Johnston’s nephew, worked for his Uncle Carmen and purchased the business from Carmen Johnstone’s daughter. In 1968, Mr. Ball purchased Henry’s Meat Market on Promontory and relocated Johnston’s up to the new location where it remains to this day.
Open until 8:00 pm year ’round
Something we often hear from our customers is, “I wish I had more time!”
With our expansion this year, we are carrying a vast variety for our community and many more options than we weren’t able to fit in our old market. We are also able to withstand the colder weather! With the market now being fully enclosed with heat and even a fire place in our Bistro we can stay open longer to serve you.
Enjoy your shopping until 8:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday year ’round.
See you soon!
