Who doesn't like local markets?
Fresh organic foods, homemade crafts, and live entertainment.
Smiling happy customers & enthusiastic producers willing to share their passion; the mixed perfumes from food trucks and handcrafted essential oils; the warm climate of Vancouver Island... I could keep going on. There are multiple reasons why people keep attending local farmers' markets and they are all good reasons.
Held year round, the Qualicum Beach Farmers' Market is probably one of the largest you could find and definitely one worth checking out. Operated from inside of the Community Hall during the winter months & outdoors on Veterans Way during the warm season, this market is generally very popular and well-attended with artisan tents and pleased customers every Saturday 8:30am - 12pm.
“ It's a great activity to do with the family on the weekend, and a great way to teach children about the importance of buying local fresh produce... ”
You will find everything you need for your healthy foods and natural products shopping within one spot. Enjoy the vast selection of fresh produce and local goods, all made from scratch by vendors who must "Make it, Bake it or Grow it" to sell it.
It's a great activity to do with the family on the weekend, a great way to teach children about the importance of buying local fresh produce or just to get your legs moving and breathe in some fresh air. Live entertainment, great people, great food and products, Qualicum Beach Famers' Market will take you right back to the roots of the old traditional ways of farm to table shopping experience! It will quickly become your first source of organic local produce and gifts. It is a very rewarding feeling that you get when you shop local and encourage local businesses and producers. Voting with your dollar is a great way to support small Vancouver Island's companies and support a more sustainable food system.
