Old Country Market, Coombs

Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 160 reviews on the web
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).

  • Once lived in the northern part of the city about a year. I went to play here every now and then at that time. Goats on the roof. And with huge ice cream. Witch shops. Where in Canada is known as the Capital of the Witch Halloween revelry are. Also the rest of the year and person and nature, cute shops, forget the passage of time. Pretty minor, so almost no tourists. If you have decided on the Vancouver and Victoria come here to stretch.

  • Amazing selection of goods in this grocery store. This tourist trap will get you and you'll be glad you took the short detour. An eclectic assortment of goods that you will enjoy just browsing through curiosity after curiosity. This place also has something for every budget. And don't forget about the goats on the roof. We were so glad we detoured. The garlic bacon soup was delicious.
  • A place that you simply can't miss. Great restaurant with great food and indoor and outdoor seating, more flavors of ice cream than you can count, and a store that has unique items that you can't find anywhere else, super cool imported groceries items from countries all around the world, a selection of toys and activities, and all sorts of things for the home and garden, plus a deli with meats and cheese and some of the best bakery items on the island. top it all off with the goats wandering around on the roof, and you've got an amazing stop for a few minutes or a few hours. parking can be really tricky to find, and it is INCREDIBLY busy, so try to get there early or late if you can!
  • Love coming for the market and ice cream. Always the most interesting items in the market in their bakery, their glassware and specialty items. Goats on the roof are a bonus. This market has its own reusable bags for sale here. They change the colours daily. Always a great souvenir for someone who collects.
  • Amazing bakery! Had a chicken and mushroom pie and a balmoral raspberry cake with espresso. Wandered through the shop and couldn't walk away without buying some international treats!! Will be returning again to check out the place with more time. And of course, the goats were cute too!! But really a special tourist and local stop over!!
  • 16 year old "Barista" spooned foamy milk into some espresso and had the nerve to call it a ($5) cappuccino. If you're going for coffee, don't. When I told the guy who I assume is the manager he was uninterested. You'd think he'd at least offer a different drink or something.. Otherwise I've always loved the country market for variety of amazing goods. Also, put Cuckoos on your list for lunch or dinner. You won't be disappointed!! Unless you stop for a coffee at the country market afterwards ;)
