Farms & Markets

Fresh produce

Vancouver Island and the neighbouring Gulf Islands feature many farms and markets that showcase local food, products, and arts and crafts.

Stroll through stands of fresh-baked breads and pastries, and check out an array of locally grown and produced foods ranging from baby salad greens and exotic types of garlic to free-range eggs and organic meats. Also look for products like home-made jams, salsas, honey and locally designed jewellery, clothing and natural soaps.

Many Vancouver Island communities host weekend markets, usually on Saturdays from May to October. From the large Duncan Farmers Market to the Salt Spring Island Saturday Market or the goats on the roof at Coombs Country Market, each market delivers a unique flavour of local farm-fresh produce and arts and crafts. Some farms on Vancouver Island also welcome visitors and offer attractions like petting zoos or corn mazes alongside their fresh produce.
