Spirit Square Farmers’ Market

Port Alberni / Ahahswinis

Ahahswinis - Meaning "cleared in the middle" in the Hupačasatḥ language.

Connecting young and old through food and music along the Alberni Inlet.

The Spirit Square Farmers’ Market is proud to provide a central venue that connects Port Alberni farmers with the local community, set against the beautiful backdrop of the Harbour Quay.

Though some vendors have attended for more than 20 years, a recent uptick of young families growing food the region has resulted in more and more young people bringing farm-fresh produce, eggs, and meat to sell at this year-round market. A central part of Port Alberni culture, Music at the Market provides a showcase for local musicians to plug in and perform under the big tent at this unique, community cornerstone.

We respectfully acknowledge that our market operates within the traditional territories of the Hupacasath and Tseshaht First Nations. The ancestral stewards of this land.

This market participates in the BC Farmers' Market Nutrition Coupon Program.
