  • Home to some of my favourite places in Victoria: Roast, The Chocolate Project and Pi...to name the top 3. This small market primarily offers delicious ready-made food selections. There's a kitchen supply, a butcher, and a small selection of rotating vendors. Parking is becoming worse with every visit - so be a little patient. It's worth a look!!
  • Love this little market, so many choices of food. Great vegan/vegetarian options. Also you can get many made local products for your house like chocolates, sauces and bakes. Great place to spend and afternoon!
  • Not seeing much stability here. Lots of empty shops or tiny over-stocked spots. I had a noodle soup which had plenty of seafood but the soup seemed like a foil packet of lower end flavouring which over powered the rest of the meal.
  • A great reflection of the entrepreneurial spirit that exists here in Victoria. From Fresh local meats to the greatest chocolates, pastries, olives, jams, and press you can imagine! We go weekly to Bumble and Hive for some playtime and it's always a treat to be in this space!!
  • The places I've tried at the Victoria market. There is a pie place in here and the pies are so delicious. To me the best pie is the sausage hand pie (they have a veggie equivalent) The hand pie was about $6 plus tax experience but it's not something you eat daily.. Then there is a pastry shop with really great croissants. They have a breakfast one that's really good. Expensive but a treat occasionally so not as bad I've had Roast a few times, expensive but you do get a fair amount of food . Everything at roast is really good. You can't go wrong with the choices. I usually get the mixed greens salad with meat usually chicken. Con:The line is always long and it's probably how they organized the order taking /staff. It could be more efficient and as a result have less of a line up. There is a Teriyaki place, typical food court stuff, pre done sushi, rice noodles a choice of meat etc. Prices are are very reasonable and you get alot of food. $8 for a full meal that will feed 2 people. Con: The veggies are always over cooked, always looks from frozen. A new place Taco place just open up good selection including a breakfast burrito I tried the chicken burrito ( choice of different meats or veggies )the portions are very small especially compared to other taco places in Victoria. As I waited for my food other people ordered tacos bowls, reg taco etc again very small.. My food was around $12.50. No extras, or special order, or drink or sides. The filling was chicken and rice, no beans! 😛 The food was very delicious, the chicken was well marinated, however that price. Just can't. Con: expensive!! Like I said, lots of other taco places nearby with more for your money. Most things in the Victoria Market is on the pricey side.

Where to stay in Victoria

The curling waterfront Wharf Street, which becomes Store Street, offers the best selection of lodgings in the city center, although you can expect to pay extra for the trademark views. Many travelers opt to stay in the neighborhood of James Bay, where Belleville Street and surrounds provide comfortable and even luxurious options. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, look south to the expansive Beacon Hill Park.
