Shopping (Kevin Arnold photo)
Shopping in the Vancouver Island region is a gastronomic delight.
The island is dotted with farms producing fresh and delicious meats, cheeses, vegetables and fruits. The area is also home to the second largest wine-producing region in BC.
Of course, good food isn't the only thing you'll find here: local artists and artisans send a steady stream of one-of-a-kind pieces to shops, art galleries and markets. Don't forget to check out Coombs Old Country Market for its fine local produce, exotic gifts, first-class deli... and goats on the roof!
While the region does offer shoppers everything from big-name fashion to big-box outlets, visitors are attracted to charming boutiques, tucked into heritage buildings, which sell an array of unique creations made locally. These include handmade soaps and body care products; hand-knit sweaters made from the wool of island sheep; handcrafted furniture made from island wood; and an amazing selection of unique folk art: gillnet rugs, hand-painted gumboots and hand-blown glass.
