Old Farm Market to open in downtown Courtenay

The Old Farm Market is opening a store at 6th and England in downtown Courtenay, formerly occupied by Thrifty Foods.

The company hopes to open the doors by mid-March.

The Old Farm Market specializes in farm fresh, locally grown produce. It has stores in Duncan and in the Oak Bay area in Victoria.

“We will be bigger and will have much more offerings of unique items with the ability to grow our support with local products,” said store manager Rick Gaiga, who had previously managed Thrifty Foods at the same location, and later Quality Foods in Comox. “My team and myself are very excited about getting our doors open to be able to serve our community.”

Mike Langtry founded the Old Farm Market in 1988. Lorne Campbell, son of the late Alex Campbell who co-founded Thrifty Foods, purchased the business in 2017.
