Home Grown, Victoria's Public Markets

In one of our previous posts we have touched on the rise in popularity in Greater Victoria Community Markets, buying locally grown or produced products and the initiative of a local society to bring a permanent public market back to downtown Victoria. Public Market

Today we wanted to offer you a list of locations and days of the of all the Markets that we have been able to find information about.  Most of the Markets are seasonal and will come to a close for the season over the next few weeks.

We hope that if you have an opportunity, to visit our local public markets and enjoy some of the amazing products, produce, and foods offered by local producers and growers. Supporting local producers is one small step towards a bit more sensible use of our resources, and it just plain fun to do.

If you have any updates, and or information about the markets mentioned or any additional markets, we encourage you to contact us and we will gladly update and re-blog the following list of Public Markets in and around Greater Victoria. please leave a comment on this blog or contact us at info@pfanntastic.com

Victoria must be the best place in the country for home grown fruits and vegeables. You are really lucky to be living in such a blessed corner of our great country. There's very little excuse for people not to be buying such great produce grown right at their doorsteps.

Hi Malcolm,

thank you for visiting and your kind comments, it is very interesting how the popularity of growing, producing and buying local is growing is starting to have a real impact. Some municipalities are even starting to look at amending zoning bylaws to allow for micro-farming.

Happy Blogging

Peter & Linda,

I always go to my friendly local farmer for produce.  It is always fresh picked and the price is always reasonable.  I always miss it during the winter months.  Produce from the grocery stores just doesn't taste the same, especially in the winter.

Hi Brigita,

Thank you for your comments, we are fortunate that our climate is very mild year round, but you are correct, nothing tastes like home grown.

Happy Selling
