My first time to this Sunday market left me wanting to return often! A talented musician helped to set a festive yet casual tone. Vendors were plentiful and helpful. Everyone was in a good mood and the quality of goods and produce was excellent.

We drove from Nanoose to this market arriving around 12:30 p,m. There were a lot of cars but the market is spread over quite a large area so it wasn't crowded with people at that time of day. I purchased plants, dried soup mixes and fresh tomatoes and peppers. There was something for everyone and the music was very relaxing.

The Cedar Farmer's Market is a very popular venue. It is held every Sunday starting at 10:00AM from Mother's Day until the end of October. A large oval of 70 tents featuring full-time vendors is found on a green meadow adjacent to the Crow & Gate Pub. In the center of the meadow is a stage where live music is... More

Great market for all your favourite veggies, produce and plants, unique handmade artisan gifts and souvenirs with great live music and activities for all the family. All set on a grassy field, it felt like an old fashioned English summer market. FYI the Crow and Gate Pub is 200 yards away for a refreshing treat after.

I have actually been here many times. It's a nice little market with crafts, fruits and veggies, meats, and more. Runs on Sundays from May Long weekend until Thanksgiving. Open 10-2. Go early for parking and go for a beer or lunch after at the Crow & Gate Pub!

Big market with country charm. Runs from May to October on Sundays. An enjoyable blend of prepared or take home foods, plus music, hand made goods, clothing and souvenirs. A great way to spend a few quality hours on a Sunday in Cedar BC.

I love going to farmers markets to source out local foods and check out the work of local artisans. The Cedar Farm Market will not disappoint. They have a wide variety of stall from local growers, artisans, and bakers. As someone with food allergies, I have to be careful what I eat and have found the vendors here to go... More

The vendors offer quite a variety of foods and crafts. In fact some of the veggies I have never tried before, but the vendors are so friendly and willing to open your horizons to new tastes. Parking does fill the road, but continue until you see the parking lot, as I find there is usually still spots there and a... More

Small but nice local craft farmers market. It it well worth a visit as we did find some gem's there. Although some of the retailers accept card, come prepared with cash.
