Mystic Market brings magic to Sooke

Event takes place June 3 at Sooke Community Hall

A unique wellness market is going to bring a little bit of magic to Sooke next month.

Mystic Market, hosted by Mystic Intuitive Services, is taking place June 3 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sooke Community Hall, 2037 Shields Road.

“In Sooke I don’t know if there’s ever been a market to this extent,” said Debra Thomlinson, a tarot, palm and psychic reader who owns and organizes the event.

The event will feature artists, tarot readers, psychic readings, wellness practitioners and more.

There will also be wellness vendors with massage, reike, aromatherapy, body products, handmade jewelry, psychic readings, palm, tarot, tea leaf readers, a henna artist, creative artists, live entertainment and food.

Thomlinson hopes to see a large turnout at the Sooke event, as the other markets attracted more 100 people.

“A lot of my vendors are actually from Sooke,” said Thomlinson. “There are so many spiritual people that live there.”

Two other Mystic Markets have taken place over the last few months, including one in February in View Royal, and one in April in Esquimalt. One is also planned for September in Victoria.

“There are so many unique services being offered; there’s something for everyone,” said Thomlinson.

Thomlinson hopes to host at least five Mystic Markets per year throughout different locations moving forward. She just began hosting the events this year.

“I have been going to markets like this throughout my life, and I always thought there has been something missing, whether it was food, or music, or a type of vendor or artist. So I decided to create my own and include as much as I can in the market,” said Thomlinson. “It’s like a carnival of creators.”

Admission to the event costs $5, and children are free. Vendors will have separate costs depending on their service.
