Gabriola has a vibrant community of passionate locavores and hard-working farmers while our small but mighty dining scene serves every palate.
Farm Stands & Farmers Markets
If a green roadside flag is flying, the farm stand is open!
Flocks of heritage hens, pastured farm animals, permaculture gardens, and wild harvesting are all common here.
Farmers markets generally run from May to October. A popular local attraction steeped in the unique island vibe is the Saturday Farmers Market. Local food is also available at the Mid-Week Market and Silva Bay Market.

Currently the collective consists of Heart & Soil Organics, Good Earth Farm and 40 x 40 Farm. We are 100% local. We are combining our efforts in order to better serve our community and pool our abundant diversity of vegetable crops.
