Downtown Victoria public market getting ready for spring-summer sales

Market Square the site of Wednesday farmer markets

If it’s spring, it must be time for farmers and other food producers and vendors to bring out their wares and offer them for sale in Market Square.

The Victoria Downtown Farmers’ Market opens up in the courtyard next Wednesday (April 4) from noon to 5 p.m.

The mid-week mainstay, billed as a “foodie” market, runs from April through October and features seasonal, locally grown produce.

The Victoria Downtown Public Market Society, which stages the weekly event, is coming off a successful winter market season and recently held a Love a Farmer film screening and speaking event at Canoe Brewpub.
