Old Country Market, Coombs

(180+ reviews on the web)
Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Selling a number of artisanal goods, Old Country Market acts as something of a one-stop village shop. The versatile, varied market includes a bakery, deli, ice cream shop, gift shop, and restaurant. After browsing, enjoy an alfresco meal or ice cream out on the patio. Don't miss the family of pygmie goats living in a log cabin on the roof of the building (and bring your camera).

  • A must see if you are headed up island - the goats on the roof just add to the experience - lots of variety to shop inside - reasonable prices. Statues outside are fun as well!  more »
  • Stopped here on the way to and from Tofino. The goats on the roof are fun, but inside is amazing. Bought a hammock, stuffed goat, homemade hot sauce, salmon jerky, and delicious olive cheese bread. On...  more »
  • Goats On Roof at Coombs, BC is definitely a tourist trap but is tons of fun. There is no entry fee and you aren’t obligated to buy anything. Even if you don’t buy anything it is fun just to see the go...  more »

  • We were there a couple of weeks ago. It was my first time visiting Goats on the Roof. I was pleased with the products I found, and I found the prices really good. The specials available that day were great and I will be returning. I am glad that I am now living on the Island and have the opportunity to shop on a regular basis.
  • It's a touristy, but they have cool stuff. Old time and classic games and toys for the kids plus lots of gourmet food. There's too much to list. Oh yeah, goats on the roof too. There's​ no access to the goats for touching or feeding.
  • So much fun - you have to visit if you are in the area. Great atmosphere in all the shops & restuarants at the market. Market is always packed with people - parking can be a problem. "Goat's on the Roof" is a unique emporium - with actual herd if goat's on it's roof. Inside is a treasure trove of items from all over the world. Enjoyable experience.
  • I love this place. The market has a great selection of local food as well as imported rarities from several countries. Everyone on the island makes a pilgrimage to the Old Country Market yearly. It's just one of those things that's become a staple. Must see. Must experience. Summer is best, but shoulder seasons are still great!
  • The old country market is a must visit when in coombs BC . The site of goats on the roof looking down on the picture taking tourists bring you in and the lushes produce and deli are marvelous. The ice cream parlor is everyone's favourite place...try the cinnamon it's so good. Lovely to hike around the property or browse the shops for affordable gifts . Even on a rainy day the old country market makes your spirit sunny.
