Old Country Market, Coombs

4.1
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Coombs
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).

    This is a terrific place when passing through Coombs. Very fun and eclectic selection of goods. A popular tourist attraction. Didn't get to see any goats on the roof though!

    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.

    We went here while visiting Coombs. I have been here before and it offered just as much as then. Lots of gifts and souvenirs to choose from. The staff was friendly and helpful. The prices were good.

    This has been a well known place to visit for quite a while. it's always pretty decent but not a whole lot to do
