Farmers’ Market moving for MusicFest

The Comox Valley Farmers’ Market will relocate to the CV Sports Centre on Vanier Drive for Saturday, July 12 only to accommodate Vancouver Island MusicFest.

Each year the two  events overlap, causing significant traffic and parking congestion for both vendors and customers who are trying to get in or out of the Exhibition Grounds.

“Last year was the first year the Market moved to the Sports Centre during MusicFest,” said VIMF Production Manager, Cresslynn Fay, “and it worked very well for both organizations. We’re happy to be working with the Farmers’ Market again this year.”

The market draws between 1,500-3,000 people on the Saturday morning so moving it to the Vanier location alleviates the congestion while keeping the Market accessible to the thousands of potential MusicFest consumers.
