Farms & Farmers Markets

There are a number of local farms to visit with fresh and often organic produce as well as locally raised meat.

Sample cheese from Little Qualicum Cheeseworks while shopping their farm gate store. BoMe Cheese is another artisan cheese company in Coombs. Sample some of their cheese specialities, lunch in the cafe or relax with an ice cream on the patio and enjoy the great view of Mount Arrowsmith.

Silver Meadows Farm has a small food market, a pumpkin patch and a seasonal corn maze. Pineridge Farm has a food market, ice cream and seasonal events on the way to Horne and Spider Lakes. And at Springford Farm Market you can pick up their own farm-raised meat, eggs, and in-season produce, as well as a full selection of local, Island-grown produce and Island made artisan foods.

Find food as well as locally crafted items at the Qualicum Beach Farmer's Market on Veteran's Way on Saturdays year-round and at the Errington Farmers Market Saturdays from May through September.

Another fun food event is the Summer by the Sea Market in Parksville (seasonal).
