09 Nov our commUNITY: The Market Stores
The Market Stores have been bringing natural and organic products to Victorians since 1999 when the first store on Yates street open its doors. Specializing in house made cakes, salads, and sandwiches these stores have built a reputation among customers to supply high quality products that are handmade.
The Market Stores have two locations in the Victoria area; downtown on Yates Street and in Langford on Millstream road. “We feed off of our customers passion for unique products” Douglas Bourque, Market on Yates Manager told us, “they are always willing to give us valuable feedback.”
The Market Stores passion for hand-made homecooked products has led them to create their own line Meat Pies and Sausage Rolls, which are sold exclusively at both stores. They work hard to support local companies and source local ingredients. The Stores also boast an high end bakery, creating everything from fancy tarts and pastries to decadent wedding cakes.
Portofino products are available at both markets stores in retail form as well as in the deli. Both the Pretzel Kaiser and Brioche Bun are used daily in the Markets sandwich bar. It’s in this same sandwich bar you can find specialty salads and grab and go items such as Spanakopita or Samosas.
Looking forward into the next year, the Yates Street store will undergo a renovation to support growing demand for locally made and produced items. This has started already with updates to the outside parking lot. Look for more from the Market Stores as they continue to grow and expand in the coming years!
