People looking at the vendors at the Selkirk Port market.

The Selkirk Port Market is a lunchtime destination for people to get outside and enjoy the summer at the Selkirk Waterfront. The market runs the last two Wednesday’s in July & every Wednesday in August from 10 am – 2 pm rain or shine, except for when we need to close for safety during thunderstorms or other extreme weather. Bring a lunch or visit a food vendor on site and enjoy our city’s fantastic musicians perform.

The market features vendors selling vegetables, honey, home made jams, jellies and relish, home made baking, jewelry, soaps, clothing and accessories, hand painted wood signs, and authentic sports collectibles – just to name a few.

United for Literacy Reading Tent

The United for Literacy (formally Frontier College) Reading Tent is back as well with two tents. Reading Tents aim to reduce the loss of knowledge and skills between the end of one school year and the beginning of the next. Focusing on literacy in a broad sense, the staff engage children in fun and inclusive activities based on diverse learning styles and reading levels. Reading Tent sessions engage learners in crafts, reading circles, movement-based activities, and end with participants selecting a free book to take home!

Busk Stop Program

The City of Selkirk welcomes and encourages Buskers to perform at the Selkirk Port Market.  One Busker will be featured each week from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. Schedule of performers will be announced soon.
