Salt Spring Money

I spent last Saturday on beautiful Salt Spring Island. This was primarily a photography trip to fill in a few gaps in the Gulf Islands book due out this fall. The Saturday market located in Ganges is likely the highlight for many visitors visiting the Gulf Islands. Photographs of the market are at Salt Spring Island Market. What many don’t know is that Salt Spring Island has its’ own official currency. While not heavily accepted off the island I gather that most of the merchants on the island will accept Salt Spring Dollars. The Canadian Government has even gone as far as labeling the currency as official, not bad for a very conservative bunch. If only they knew who lived on the island.
