 Coastal Dweller Holiday Pop-Up Goes Down in Deep Cove this Weekend


The weather forecast looks favourable for getting out of the city this weekend. We recommend putting in some time outdoors by unwinding or working up a sweat at one of the many parks Deep Cove has to offer. Start off the day by filling up your belly with some locally roasted Moja coffee and an organic buckwheat crepe at Bluhouse Market & Cafe and, while you’re digesting, limber up by doing some holiday shopping before hitting the trails. From 10am to 6pm now through Sunday, the Bluhouse is hosting the Coastal Dweller Holiday Pop Up. The shop will see more than 15 women-owned brands, ranging from self-care and clothing to ceramics and textiles. Bonus: If you have the forethought to pack your bag with some non-perishables you’ll get 10% off your purchases – wins all around! Cap off the day with dinner at Arms Reach Bistro and check out local breweries Bridge Brewing Company and Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers for some seasonal brews (we recommend Bridge’s “Quawyi Sour” and Deep Cove‘s “The Crawl Stout”).
