Summer Seasonal Market Season Has Arrived!
The summer seasonal Farmers’ Markets are now open. In addition to the year-round Saturday Market there are now two more markets available. These markets include Wednesdays in downtown Courtenay and Sundays in Cumberland. The Downtown Courtenay market runs every Wednesday from 3 PM-6PM until August 31 and is located on Duncan Avenue between 5th and 6th Street. The Cumberland market runs every Sunday from 10-1 until September 11 and is located in the Village Square (Between the old Post Office and Cumberland Village Bakery).
Both these seasonal markets offer the same variety of local goodness you know and love. There will also be live music and a kids table at the Sunday market. As well as being in easy walking distance, there is ample parking at both locations.
During the summer months expect to find berries of all kinds, salad greens, herbs, carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, peaches and so many more fresh fruits and vegetables. There will also be a variety of small-scale meats and eggs. For the sweet tooth you will also find delicious homemade baking such as berry pies, crackers, cookies and muffins. So much local goodness in one place.

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!
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.
