Qualicum Beach Farmers’ Market

Qualicum Beach

- The name Qualicum itself comes from the name for 'dog salmon', or chum salmon, the name given to the land around Qualicum beach in the Halq'eméylem language. As places were previously named not after people but after the qualities of the land.

Eat fresh, buy local, be healthy.

The Qualicum Beach Farmers’ Market plays host to the community year-round as they introduce locals and visitors to the region’s most talented makers, bakers, and growers every Saturday morning.

Since the market’s inception in 1997, a genuine “Meet me at the Market” feeling has permeated this community who proudly supports their local food producers. This early morning market starts promptly with the ring of the market bell, as friends and neighbours catch up over hot coffee and fresh snacks, and vendors display their fresh farm produce alongside up-and-coming independent food producers.

We respectfully acknowledge that the land we gather on is the Unceded Traditional Territory of the Qualicum First Nation.

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