Easter Long Weekend Hours

It’s Easter weekend and we’re open everyday for your feast favourites BUT we are closing  an hour early on Easter Sunday so our team can spend Easter with their friends and family!

Start planning your Easter dinner – we’ve got free run and organic turkeys, local and island raised beautifully smoked hams, AAA canadian prime rib roasts and all the lamb from legs to racks in the Chop Shop.

Find your favourite florals in the Potting Shed, pick up a little something lovely for your table or the host, or ask one of our lovely team for a custom bouquet or arrangement just for you.

There’s sweet goodies galore in store – gluten free treats from Laughing Daughters on Saltspring Island, cookies from Bond Bond Bakery in Victoria and favourite classics (including hot cross buns!) from Portofino Bakery in Saanich.  Pop into the Coffee Project and find irresistable Yonni’s doughnuts, giant home made deliciousness from Sidney Scones and much more.

And, of course, all the fresh fruit and veggies you could wish for, with plenty of locally grown and BC goodness for your feast.  Celebrate with food this Easter!
