Comox Valley Farmers’ Market moves indoors for the season

The Comox Valley Farmers’ Market is moving back to the Native Son’s Hall this weekend to settle in for the winter months.

As the market shifts seasons, the hours will shift as well to a later start. Hours for the fall market are 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

The fall hours to allow farmers time to feed animals and load product in the daylight, as well as allowing customers more time to get to the market.

Over the summer celebrations have included a Market Passport launch sponsored by Royal LePage’s Comox Valley Homes where customers were encouraged to engage with vendors by gathering signatures, to be entered into a draw to win a basket of market product. The first draw is this weekend at the Native Son’s Hall so make sure your passport gets entered.

Fifty or more vendors attend the fall market each week with their local food product, and with the fall harvest still coming in vendors will again be spilling out onto the street so that as many vendors as possible can be accommodated.

The fall market runs every Saturday at the Native Son’s until Dec. 23, however, due to Remembrance Day falling on a Saturday this year, the Market will not be open November 11.
