A beach market is coming to the Sea to Sky Highway
The Sea to Sky highway is about to get a lot cooler, with the addition of the Britannia Artisan Market. Looks like we get to add another stop on the Squamish section of our guide to day trips from Vancouver! Now, while you’re there, you’ll be able to visit an artisan market on the beach.
Approved earlier this month, the Britannia Artisan Market will feature 50 vendors for the summer. If all goes well, that number could rise to 120 in 2020. We assume that there will be some solid diversity at the market, so food, art, clothing, etc… should all be on offer.
On another note, a new helicopter touring company could be setting up shop in the same area, but residents are (rightfully) concerned about the noise factor. So, that might take a little longer to get through.
If it does, though, then Britannia will have one more draw for tourism in the area and can expect it to be another step towards turning a sleepy mining town into a genuine attraction for those travelling on the Sea to Sky.
As for us, well, we’re happy just as long as the Mine Museum and Galileo Coffee stay open.
