The Whistler Farmers Market takes place every Sunday in the Upper Village. A wide variety of local artists and artisans take part, making it an integral part of the summer art scene.
A great way to experience local galleries and public art pieces is with the Whistler art-walking tour. Self-guided brochures are available at Millennium Place or at www.whistlerartscouncil.com.
Also, many local cafes, restaurants, bars and retail outlets display local visual artists on their walls. Keep your eyes open. You never know where you might spy that essential piece...
