Buy local, eat healthy, live well!

Fresh vegetable basket

Welcome to the e-version of the Southern Vancouver Island Direct Farm Marketing Association guide to farms and farm fresh products in Greater Victoria and the Gulf Islands, the Cowichan Valley, and north to Parksville.

Click on the menu to find when products are in season (what’s in season), where you can buy them (products), and how to get to the farms you want (farms and maps). You can also find information on farmers’ markets on southern and central Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands (markets).

Buying local is good for you – and the environment! We update our website every month beginning in April with information on special recipes using local farm products throughout the growing season and other news on our local farming community. We look forward to seeing you at our farms and wineries in 2017.

Look for the 2017 FARM FRESH guide in your local Black Press Community Newspapers (Peninsula News Review, Saanich News, Victoria News, Oak Bay News, Goldstream News Gazette or the Cowichan Valley Citizen) on FRIDAY, APRIL 21 or in the Sooke News Mirror on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26.

Also, be sure to check back later this month as IslandFarmFresh.com will be getting a new look for the 2017 farming season!
