Foodies...enjoy Salt Spring's bounty!


Vineyard grapes


Salt Spring enjoys the same micro-climate that is experienced on all of the Southern Gulf Islands.

Called "cool Mediterranean", it supports vineyards (wineries), olive groves, orchards (cideries), and the many organic farm holdings (including the Salt Spring Cheese producer).

The Saturday Market and the Tuesday Farmers Market showcase the agricultural community's endeavours. Farmgate stands (all on the honour system) invite one to choose fresh produce. Our amazing restaurants choose to shop local whenever possible.

Whether you are a visitor or you are lucky enough to live here, Salt Spring shares its healthy lifestyle...and yes, that involves fresh food. The 10K diet is alive and well on Salt Spring Island.
