“Exciting News: Welcoming Our New Member ‘SeaSide Market’ to Spinnakers’ Landing!”

The Summerside Port Corporation Inc. Explore Summerside, Greater Summerside Chamber of Commerce, and Downtown Summerside would like to take this opportunity to introduce our upcoming Summerside Seaside Market at Spinnakers’ Landing.

The market will be held every Saturday from June 29 to August 31,  1pm- 5pm 

(weather permitting)

We will be hosting approximately 22 tables of  local Artisans and craft vendors. We are also looking forward to having the Young Millionaires Program join us with several tables. As well we will have a culture corner dedicated to members of IRSA (Immigrant & Refugee Services Association). 

Our hope is to bring more people and businesses to the downtown Summerside area. We would like to show guests of Summerside how open and inviting the people of Summerside are. The market is a great place to meet both old and new friends. 

The reason for this is 3 fold:

  1. We would like the opportunity to display a poster advertising the market in your business.
  1. It would be fantastic if any local eateries wanted to offer a lunch or dinner special to coincide with the market.
  1. If your business is interested in sponsoring some live entertainment during the market, a sponsorship of $250 will get your company banner displayed at the event (you provide the banner) and a shout out on our social media page.

Thank you for your time,

Summerside Seaside Market
