We stopped off at the Coombs Market this morning before we said goodbye to Vancouver Island.
Coombs is just 37 kms north of Nanaimo and the market is a great place to stop during an Island day trip, weekend, or getaway. For those who have heard of, or been to, Coombs you’ll probably associate it with the goats that graze on the grassy roof of the market- becoming a local staple over the last 30 years. Unfortunately the goats don’t come out until May but we had a nice time exploring regardless.
In the market and each of us tried a different type of delicious flatbread for lunch and to go along with the great-tasting coffee, I topped off my meal with a fresh raspberry and white chocolate muffin. I purchased some Comox Valley Brie, a loaf of rosemary & cheese bread and a helping of chili smoked salmon jerky to bring home.
…. And of course I couldn’t resist the selection of brightly-coloured toys and knickknacks for kids.
Thank to Keira, her mom, and her aunt for hosting me this weekend and I was certainly glad to come along to welcome Jordy to Vancouver (even though my post about the “pet area” on BC Ferries is forthcoming).
The rest of my photos from the weekend are available in my Flickr set.
