Duncan Farmers’ Market

Duncan / Quw’utsun,

Quw’utsun, - The Cowichan Valley takes its name from “Quw’utsun,” the name given to the valley by its original inhabitants, the Quw’utsun people. It is rooted in the Hul’q’umi’num word “shquw’utsun” which directly translated means “to warm one’s back in the sun,”.

Community spirit in the heart of the Cowichan Valley.

All year round, rain or shine, the iconic Duncan Farmers’ Market invites the community to come out and meet some of the Cowichan Valley’s most popular farmers and food producers, exhibiting their finest selection right behind Duncan City Hall.

Depending on the season, up to 110 vendors pack into City Square and down along Ingram Street. A rotating selection of local musicians take to the stage as friends, neighbours, and visitors enjoy hot food, organic produce, sustainable seafood, local meat, homemade preserves, artisan wines and spirits, and much, much more.

We acknowledge our market operates on land that for thousands of years the Quw’utsun, Malahat, Ts’uubaa-asatx, Halalt, Penelakut, Stz’uminus, & Lyackson Peoples have walked gently on, and are the traditional territories and unceded land where we now live, work, and learn.

This market participates in the BC Farmers' Market Nutrition Coupon Program.
