6 Fantastic Farmer’s Markets in Victoria: Summer (2019)

Victoria is home to some fantastic farmer’s markets.

You’ll find a wide array of local Victoria vendors selling organic produce, local meats and cheeses, artisan clothing, handmade goods, and more.

Collectively, these markets focus on a few key elements that define Victoria’s approach to both food and products:

Locally sourced.
Sustainable production and packaging.
Community first.

Some of these farmer’s markets will also feature food trucks serving up made-to-order meals. A few of my favourite food trucks in town include Deadbeetz (find them at the Esquimalt Market) and Coast Lunch Box (find them at the Moss Street Market).
