Volunteers Needed!

The Comox Valley Farmers’ Market has been providing fresh, local and nutritionally dense food to the Comox Valley and beyond since 1992. Summer is our busiest time of the year as we have one year round market and 2 summer seasonal markets operating. There are a lot of activities that happen behind the scenes to make the markets run smoothly. In order to complete all of this we rely on volunteers to make the magic happen.  If you are interested in volunteering click here for more information or here to apply.

Outdoor Market COVID-19 Measures 

The Farmers’ Market is considered an essential service and will therefore remain open but with several measures in place to keep everyone safe and reduce risks. Although the market will look a little different from what you might be used to, you will still be able to safely purchase the food you know and love and continue to support local growers and producers.  For a detailed list of our safety procedures check out our Outdoor Market COVID-19 Protocols linked below.

Welcome to our new Online Farmers’ Market. 

This online platform is meant to compliment our “on the ground” farmers market, not replace it.

During COVID-19 our online market is especially important to keep the residents of the Comox Valley and beyond supplied with fresh, local and nutritionally dense food.  Although our store is operational, we are still working with vendors to make sure all your favorite products are available.

Please be patient as we bring our vendors and their products on board and work out some kinks such as delivery locations and dates.  As we make changes, we will keep you updated.  If the product you are looking for is not available in the Online Store contact the vendor directly to make other arrangements.  Vendor contact information is located HERE.  Happy Shopping!

 

Our Markets

 

We have a variety of markets throughout the year in different locations in Courtenay and Cumberland including a year-round Saturday market and seasonal summer markets.  Each of these markets offers customers an unique experience.

Looking for a vendor? Want to donate to our New Farmer Bursary Fund? Need a bag? Need Market Tokens?  Lost something? Have a suggestion? Please let us know. The Market staff and volunteers can help you; they are located at the market tent which is located near the musician stage.

 Vendor Location Maps

Want to know where your favourite vendor is located?  Check out our location maps below.  You can click on the vendor location dot and find out more information about that specific vendor.  Note that these maps are linked to another program that is used to create the vendor location information and is automatically updated to the website at various times though the process and as a result you may not be viewing the map the represents the vendors that will actually be at the market.  The final map will be active by 5 pm the night before the market so you will have time to plan out your market day.  Happy Shopping!
