Why Shop at Cedar Farmers Market?
The Cedar Farmers Market runs every Sunday from Mother’s Day until the end of October – May 10th till October 27th, 2020 – from 9:30 am (seniors and immune-compromised individuals) and 10 am – 2pm for the general public.
We are at our NEW location: Woodbank School, 1984 Woobank Road.
Cedar is just a a short ten minute drive south of Nanaimo and 90 minutes north of Victoria with access to the Vancouver mainland via BC Ferries.
From Cedar Road, turn onto either Moreland Road or Woobank Road and we are only one block up. We have onsite parking with access from Moreland as well as two dedicated parking attendants. Please feel free to ask them for assistance .
Bus Route #8
We are open! We are operating with a reduced number of vendors than normal (roughly 54 versus 2019’s 86). We have cordoned off the field and have a single entrance point where we can manage customer numbers to ensure safe social distancing on the field. Please, be patient with us.
We are now permitted to sell artisan goods and also take-out food, coffee, and chai. Please do not consume food or drink on the field, though if you would like to picnic there are two large outer fields for you to enjoy.
We are not allowed to offer food/drink samples or have live music.
During this time of global instability it is imperative that we get local crops onto local plates. We cannot afford to rely on international imports, we cannot afford to see locally grown and produced products go to waste, and we must continue to invest in our farms, our fields, and our people for today and for tomorrow’s generations.
Have a question? We would love to hear from you!
We are still accepting vendor applications, but please be aware that space is limited.
A link to vendor applications can be found at the top of this page and it is always free to apply.
