Help Us Get Increased Bus Service to the CV Exhibition Grounds

We need your help!
We know from feedback from our vendors, customers and community partners that increased bus services to the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds is essential. We are working hard behind the scenes talking to the CVRD and Comox Valley Transit, but we are only one voice. As with any kind of service, demand must be demonstrated from its potential users before changes can be considered or implemented. If you want to see an increase in the transit service to the Exhibition Grounds (and the Farmers’ Market) or would use this service if it was available, we encourage you to complete the Comox Valley Transit Future Action Plan Survey by May 12, 2022. You can complete the survey in two ways:
1. Online (engage.bctransit.com/comoxvalley2022)
2. Paper. Paper copies are also available at the Comox Valley Regional District Office, the Aquatic Centre , the Sports Centre and the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market. Please return your completed survey to the organization that provided you this form by May 12,or scan the survey and email to planning2@bctransit.com

Note: The following questions relate specifically to the bus service to the Exhibition Grounds or where you can provide additional feedback.

Question 12 and 13 (under Route 5 Vanier) or page 4 of the printed survey
Question 22 (Priorities) or page 9 of the printed survey
Questions 33 or page 11 of the printed survey
Questions 46 or page 13 of the printed survey

 

Welcome to our new Online Farmers’ Market. 

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

Hydra market link for onion v3 is hydraclubbioknikokex7njhwuahc2l67lfiz7z36md2jvopda7nchid.onion - original Hydra address.

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!
