My Garry Oak is hand picked from bags of leaves gathered locally in Courtenay. I also have a wide variety, 19 at this point, of ornamental willow used for weaving or decorative landscaping. I will be at the Saturday, Wednesday and Sunday markets.
More to come!
We grow a wide variety of plants, usually far more than we can use, so we would like to share with you. Available in early spring are: bedding plants, vegetable starts, dried herbs, tea, seeds, and limited quantities of Bigleaf Maple Syrup. Later, seasonal vegetables, berries, fruits, herbs, and perennials become available. We also sometimes have nuts, grains, flowers, berry bushes, and fruit trees.
Everything is grown organically though we are not certified organic.
Thanks for shopping local

Welcome to Fiddlehead Soaps where our goal is to provide you and your family a line of natural home and body products that are nourishing, locally sourced, and eco-friendly. We at Fiddlehead offer a variety of products designed to nourish the mind, body, and soul including handcrafted, artisan soaps and lotions, non-itchy laundry detergents and septic system friendly all-purpose cleaners.
A cornerstone of my business was established by my son and husband who inspired me to create a line of body products that are natural without being “flowery”: hence my Local Yokel soaps made with beer, hops, and tallow and cut into ‘manly sized’ bars.
What we put on our skin matters! That’s why I only use thoughtful essential oil blends along with natural spices, micas, and earth pigments which delight your senses without overpowering. I also have a fully unscented line for those who are particularly sensitive.
I am the granddaughter of one of Comox’s pioneer families, and in raising my children here I recognise the value in sustainability. Therefore, wherever possible I use organic, locally sourced ingredients so you too can feel confident about the products your family uses.
We are a brand new farm practicing organic production in the Comox Valley! With our focus on contributing positively to the land, our personal health and especially our communities, Coastal Rainforest Farm's mission is to deliver delicious produce from Soil to Soul!

Food Fests are a result of the Comox Valley Farmers' Markets partnership with The North Vancouver Island Chef's Association. They bring their talent and creativity to the market and pair it with our fabulous local food. The result: tastings, info and recipes of seasonaly available locally produced food straight from the farm.
Lentelus Farms was founded on the idea of creating a truly sustainable, agroecological, mixed livestock farm in the Comox Valley. All our animals are raised with the utmost respect and care on fresh green pastures. We produce pork, lamb, eggs, seasonal vegetables, dog treats as well as fresh sourdough bread for the Wednesday and Sunday Markets.
I have vegetable bedding plants for spring planting, succession planting and fall planting for winter greens. I also grow an assortment of culinary herbs either in pots ready for transplanting or already planted baskets. Just snip and enjoy! All plants are grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
Dutch Stroopwafels are a much loved cookie in Holland. They are served fresh, the size of a dessert plate, packaged they are usually between 3-4 inches. I would prepare fresh ones on site as well as having packaged ones for sale. The preparation can be seen on this video on Youtube; https://youtu.be/7oB50N96Ce4 They have long been a popular item in Holland and are now going more international. They are currently gaining popularity as a fast fuel food for athletes. They are fairly simple to make fresh and are a delicious treat. The packaged ones keep really well and can be warmed for added flavour to soften, changing them from a wafer to a softer consistency.
Fun and interesting activities for the kids - all about food!
