James Bay Market

Welcome to the James Bay Market


Coming into our 29th year, the Market has grown and changed by leaps and bounds since its creation back in 1995. Saturday mornings now see a gathering of 50 plus tents bustling with excited vendors with their colourful displays of fresh local fruits, vegetables and farm produce along with baked goods, locally brewed beverages, prepared foods and preserves. Our crafters offer you a large selection of art, woodworking, clothing, body care products, jewellery and more!

Along with your shopping bags make sure to bring along your dancing shoes and appetite as we’ll have three sets of free live music for your listening enjoyment and food trucks to tempt your tastebuds. Come say hi to all your favourite vendors and meet some new ones, too!

Locals and visitors alike can grab a cup of coffee at our Info Booth, gather their weekly veggies and prepared foods for mealtime and do some gift shopping while soaking up the live music and community spirit.


Weekly on Saturdays (rain or shine)
9:00am – 3:00pm

494 Superior Street (corner of Menzies & Superior), Victoria, BC, V8V 1T6

Did you know that dogs (and pets) are welcome at the James Bay Market? Just make sure they’re feeling social, well-behaved and on a leash so everyone feels safe and secure!

Please make sure to keep them away from the foods and clean up after them!
