We've been here a couple times and it's a lot of fun. They have a lot of fun imported foods and other little novelty shops. There's also a used bookstore that has a ton of books and comics, a fun little statue area (which holds tons of fun photo opps) and of course the adorable goat family up on the roof!

An experience you'll have to do to get it. Obscure monuments, obscure markets, obscure goats, large ice cream cones, and goats meandering above. Just wow. Didn't eat at the restaurant, the market has something for everyone, foods, textiles, souvenior goat related items, etc. The ice cream store next door is amazing!! A must have. It is kinda of crowded and can be chaotic depending on how many customers are in there. Beware they ONLY take cash. There are other shops in the back including a market with fresh produces. Parking can be slim so we opted to park on the side of the road. Don't forget to get the obligatory picture in the wooden cut out!

Specializing in locally produced goods and foods this little village like market place is a wonder to visit. With a lot of different shops you can find Vancouver Islands best.

Fun, lots of variety, a bit expensive.
Goats on the roof are a tradition. Always crowded on weekends.

We enjoyed shopping at this market. The staff were helpful and friendly. All the products we bought were great, but we were especially pleased with the bread that we bought at the bakery. We would stop here again.
