Victoria, BC is the capital of British Columbia and home to breathtaking scenery, gorgeous historic buildings, wonderful museums, award-winning restaurants, and an abundance of outdoor activities. While there is never a shortage of things to do, there is always a reason we can think of to make a stop at the Victoria Public Market at the Hudson. This incredible market, located downtown in the historic former Hudson Bay building, is a hot spot for young and old, residents and visitors alike.
The Farmers’ Market takes place every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday through the entire year—where else can you experience this great food and more during every season? There are also lots of great events going on throughout the year so be sure to keep up with their calendar so you don’t miss out. Coming up October 31st, 2014 they will be hosting a Halloween extravaganza complete with trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving and ghost stories. Every Thursday is Locals Night where you can hear some fantastic music by talented local artists and take advantage of discounts and special promotions going on. The Community Kitchen is another great part of the market where you can take a private or public class or watch one of the many free demonstrations from local and visiting chefs. Some of the vendors you will see at this market include the Victoria Pie Co., Salt Spring Island Cheese, Island Spice Trade, Silk Road, and Cowichan Bay Seafood to name a few. Get the best products from dedicated farmers, bakers, preservers, brewers, butchers, florists, and more.
Tuesday through Saturday – 9:30am-6:30pm
