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).

  • One of my favourite places. They have items from all over the world including food, kitchen items, decor, art items, toys, clothing, just to name a few. It also has a bakery and a restaurant with a jukebox. In the summer they have pygmy goats that graze on the green roof. They are open from March till the end of December, make sure to stop by for a visit.
  • Very neat little area, on outskirts of Parksville. Lots of great shops, fresh food, delicious ice-cream, and loads of fun! A little overkill with the statues but otherwise great stop on your way to Port Alberni. Don’t forget to stop in at T-shirts that Talk for a great t-shirt😉
  • The good old coombs market often copied never equaled. Great for the tourists. Good for the locals during the end of year sales. The restaurant is a good one with good food and great chowder. The bakery has good products but is overpriced. Strictly a tourist trap. The traffic through this business is truly awesome but creates a lot of congestion on highway4 and is avoided by the locals during the season.
  • Lots of unique and interesting things to be found here. Tad pricey, but expected if a tourist trap. The produce at the market is locally sourced and reasonably priced.
  • It was an interesting and fun place to visit! This place is famous for its Goats on the Roof with green grass. The market has a bakery, a deli and sells all sorts of cultural groceries. You can find some unique crafts and creative ornaments here. If you are hungry, you can stay and enjoy a good meal with your friends and family at their cafe. The market is next to a well decorated meeting square full of adorable animal stone statues. Your kids will love to be there! I especially love the three giant Buddha statues standing tall in the square. We go there quite often to just sit and have a cup of coffee or eat ice cream.
