Vancouver Island cities are host to a number of Farmer's Markets. Some are open year round and others start up in May & June. Below is a list of markets in your city & neighbourhood. Being the largest island on the west coast of North America we are a sustainable island and it’s important to buy local and support local! As any local resident will tell you, our community is very important to us and we also love a good farmer's market! If you are in the ‘market’ to buy fresh produce or fruit, but also honey, nuts, soap, chocolate, flowers, alcohol, hand made goods and more unique items, the list can go on and on, you will find it at one of these farmers markets!If you are new to Vancouver Island or thinking about moving to a new neighbourhood, maybe one of these markets will help you decide! There is nothing better then waking up on a Saturday morning, walking to your local farmer's market to grab fresh fruit and a coffee, and say hello to your neighbours.
