Why I love living on Salt Spring Island
Salt Spring Island has a strong locally produced food ethic. Many of the Island's
restaurants and food stores source locally for fruits, vegetables, eggs, etc. as the
seasons permit. Food plays an important part in several Salt Spring Island events
including a Fall Fair, an apple festival, the April to October Saturday Market, and a
seasonal Tuesday Farmers Market.
There are several wineries and vineyards on Salt Spring Island. The Island also has its
own local craft brewery. These wines and beers are featured at many of the local
restaurants, and can also be purchased either directly from the producer or through the
Island's beer & wine stores.
You are in best recreational boat cruising waters on the West Coast of North America. One
can cruise from the American San Juan Islands thru the Southern Gulf Islands, the Northern
Gulf Islands, Desolation Sound, and all the way to the northern tip of Vancouver Island in
relatively protected waters. Salt Spring Island has two marinas and many oceanfront
properties have a private dock.
One does not need to leave Salt Spring Island to obtain the gear of day to day life. Salt
Spring Island's Town of Ganges offers food stores, pharmacies, book / magazine stores, gas
stations, auto repair places, hardware store, office supply store, toy store, hospital,
post office, several restaurants, and much more.
Should one require something that cannot be procured on island, or just a change of scene,
there are three ferry routes to and from Salt Spring Island. You can easily do day trips
to Sidney, Victoria, Duncan, Chemainus, Ladysmith, and Nanaimo. Trips to Vancouver take
longer, but day trips are still possible. Fortunately, there are seaplane companies that
provide fast access between Ganges and Vancouver.
Salt Spring Island has an active Arts community. The Island is home to many artists of all
types. There are many galleries that sell local art. There is an Artisan's Tour, where one
can buy art directly from the artisan, whom created it. Salt Spring Island has its own
performing Arts centre known as Artspring featuring plays and musical performances.
