it's so cute to see the goats frolicking about and the market itself is quite good.. very quaint and a nice little stop especially on a day out adventure.

Delicious food, great prices in the market and for food, and seeing the goats on the roof is always a treat. Cheap art supplies and canvases

“What a fun and enjoyable place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Coombs Market is one of a kind, they have a great tasting bakery, restaurant, and the most unusual gift store and market you will ever see, not to mention a live family of goats which live on top of the grassy roof, also the hard ice cream is the best I have ever had, if your on Vancouver Island make sure you make a trip to Coombs Market, it's a real treat.

“A great market with a few fantastic quirks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I really enjoyed taking pictures of the neat buildings all around this area, and of course of the goats patrolling the roof.

The market was nice, I highly suggest picking up some of the unpasteurized wildflower honey they sell. The surrounding shops were also neat to explore, so all-in-all I think it's a worthwhile stop to make if you are in the area.
