Cedar Farmers’ Market

Nanaimo / Snuneymuxw (Snoo-nay-mowck)

Snuneymuxw (Snoo-nay-mowck) - Nanaimo and its surrounding area is derived from the mispronunciation of Snuneymuxw (Snoo-nay-mowck), which means “gathering place of a great people.” in reference to the Snuneymuxw people and Nation.

The small community with big variety.

Just south of Nanaimo in the small community of Cedar, families gather in the grassy fields of Woodbank Primary School to experience the bounty of Vancouver Island. What started as a few local farmers selling produce and preserves on the side of the road more than 20 years ago, the Cedar Farmers’ Market has turned 6 market stalls into 80 – becoming one of the Island’s most popular markets.

After a serene drive through the country, visitors are welcomed by an extensive variety of local vendors providing everything from local produce and fresh baked goods, to hot food, ice cold treats, and artisan crafts.

The Cedar Farmers Market operates on the Traditional and Unceded Territory of the Coast Salish people. We are eternally grateful to the Snuneymuxw First Nation for their generosity in hosting our market and in welcoming us when we were in need of a home. Hay ce:p œa’
