Sooke has a couple of them that I've enjoyed too. Farmers on Saturday and I think a night market.

Not within Greater Victoria, but the Duncan Saturday market is absolutely fantastic. Most of the downtown street network closes off completely for the market, which goes for blocks and blocks. I didn't even know about it and ended up there by mistake after a hike on Mt Tzouhalem. I was very pleasantly surprised.

“This is our opening day. It’s May the fourth,” said Carole Elliott, chair of the James Bay Market. “It’s been fabulous today. The weather has been beautiful and our neighbours have been fabulous in coming out to support us.”

seems like they are taking the lead that esquimalt market has set out... Esquimalt market has been running for a few weeks now, they have social distancing in place, hand washing set ups, they don't have any live music, or food trucks or craft vendors, they have even set up pre-orders to help streamline the process

The Goldstream Farmers Market has received the go-ahead from the City of Langford for a modified version this summer.

 

Council recently voted to support the market that begins on June 6 by providing barricades to encourage social distancing while customers shop. They will also be providing a five gallon container of hand sanitizer which will be used on-site at Veterans Memorial Park from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Sunday.
