Wednesday Market starts this week

With the support of the Downtown Courtenay Business Improvement Association the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market is bringing back the Midweek Farmers’ Market on England Ave. this summer.

More than 25 vendors converge in downtown Courtenay for this handy midweek morning market.

This year the Wednesday Market will also be working with local chefs from the North Island Chef’s Association and As you Like It Products and Catering to bring a series of food fests to the Midweek market. These events take product from the farmers at the market and create samples for consumers.

Watch the market’s Facebook page for dates.

This will be the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market’s third year at the England Ave. location and executive director Vickey Brown says it’s worked well for farmers and customers alike.

“We see a whole new crowd at the Wednesday Market,” said Brown.

“Lots of folks are keen to get their hands on local food, but can’t get to the market on Saturday, so this is a great opportunity for them to add the market to their downtown shopping excursion.”

The Wednesday Market runs from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. every week until Sept. 2 on England Ave. between 5th and 6th Streets.
