We truly keep our friends close and our farmers closer, for our flagship McKenzie Corner location at the boundary of the Saanich agricultural region and the city of Victoria allows us to purchase just picked fresh in-season produce for both of our markets from small farmers and greenhouses directly adjacent to us. Freshly harvested brassicas, the sweetest summer berries & unearthed new potatoes from the fields surrounding us, to locally grown grapes & fresh figs still warm from the sun arrive daily during the local growing season.

This local first purchasing focus allows us to receive lush new crop leafy greens, the season’s very first few pickings of peas & beans and a sweet box of meyer lemons from a local garden. Fresh cherries are brought straight to our doors by the Okanagan growers themselves whilst a visit to the local kiwi farm brings forth vines of beautifully ripe fruit, soon to be at our market.

Sourcing from over 250 local & BC farmers, producers & suppliers, to bring you the island’s best produce. Shop with the comfort of knowing where your food comes from and the assurance that it was sourced with care.
