Moss Street Market Moves!

In recent weeks, we have been operating at our traditional location on the Sir James Douglas school grounds and Moss Street and Thurlow Road boulevards. This has worked very well, but with farmer spring harvests increasing and more customers anticipated in the coming weeks, the space will be insufficient in size and layout to allow us proper physical distancing.
Therefore, we asked the City of Victoria to temporarily move the market to both Porter Park and Brooke Street Park. We have happily received their permission and we are moving the market to both parks starting this Saturday, April 18 (see map below).

Yes, We Are Open

The BC CDC includes farmers markets as an essential service and has stated that “Farmers’ markets are not currently considered a high risk setting for the transmission of COVID-19.” We will remain open as long as we are able, but with a number of limitations and measures in place for the security and well being of our vendors, staff, customers, families, and communities. See more on the measures we are taking here.

We are open every Saturday. April: 10am to 1pm. May, and on: 10am to 2pm.

We have also opened an online store, at localline.ca/moss-street-market, with delivery and pick up options available.

In BC CDC’s statement from March 26, farmers markets are included in essential services. We will continue to hold our market outdoors (Saturdays 10am to 1pm) unless circumstances change to prohibit our operation.

Despite the considerable measures we have undergone to maximize safety, we recognize that not all of our customers can or wish to attend the market during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are pleased to announce the introduction of Moss Street Market’s online store, now open, offering both delivery and pick up options. As we have rolled this out quickly, currently only handful of our vendors are on the store but more will join in the coming days.
