Organic vegetables. Award-winning cheeses. Free-range chickens.

Visit the 17-year-old Comox Valley Farmers' Market on a Saturday morning, and this is just a sampling of the fresh, local products you will find — and just a small example of why the Comox Valley is often called the Land of Plenty.

From mid-April to Thanksgiving, more than 80 local farmers, fishermen, gardeners and bakers bring their products to the outdoor market on Headquarters Road beside the Exhibition Grounds Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
