Our Circle of Shops
The Ringside Market is a circle of intimate shops, cafés, services, artisan booths and the Co-op. This is where islanders, summer residents and visitors come together to grab a bite, get that important plumbing bit, or have our bikes tuned up. More than just a being our commercial centre, Ringside is also the social heart of Hornby.
More “business” is done in the produce section of the Co-op than just about anywhere else. The Co-op porch is where you can find out about upcoming events, meetings and what movie is playing that weekend.
Just down the stairs you will find the annual Community Quilt hanging all summer – buy a raffle ticket for a chance to win this incredible hand stitched masterpiece which has been painstakingly assembled throughout the winter. Every summer the proceeds are dedicated to a local organization and buying a raffle ticket is a great way to contribute to the ongoing sustainability of our community.
Newly installed outlets on community benches allow for handy charging of electronic devices, and the addition of 6 new picnic tables and umbrellas offer a communal place to eat, drink, and socialize.
