The Queen Charlotte Farmers’ Market has been a part of the community for decades, and some of its vendors have been with the market since it first began. The Queen Charlotte Farmers’ Market features growers, farmers, cooks, bakers and artisans from all over the island, and everything sold in the market has been grown, baked or created by an island resident.
The market began as a way to showcase the work of local food and art producers and to encourage a self-sustaining island economy. But over the years the market has grown to be more than a place to buy local food and artwork. Today it is a place for friends to meet, chat and spend time together every Saturday. Visitors will find a variety of goods throughout the season, including fresh produce in the summer, local meat, poultry and seafood, eggs, baked goods, gourmet food products, handicrafts and artwork.
Weekly orders are available for residents who want a little bit of everything prepared especially for them. The Queen Charlotte Farmers’ Market is a vibrant, dynamic place to be both for vendors and for guests.
