Market Sunday

This morning, Francis and I got up nice and early to start our day.  We ate a quick breakfast and headed downtown to grab a coffee and walk around the inner harbour (touristy, I know, but we haven't done it in such a long time that we figured it would be really nice, especially it being such a beautiful day).

I had a bowl of banana oats, topped with some PB 2.  Francis had eggs and toast. 

Downtown, we checked out the Sunday Market in Bastian Square and wow, was I impressed.  It has definitely expanded since the last time I was there.  A lot more fresh, local produce, which I was so excited about.  I think I might have even done a little hop out of happiness!  I could have taken one of everything home but because a lot of it is pricey, I had to be selective.

We picked up some pesto...

 Dried Apple Snaps, which aren't chewy like dried apples, they are crunchy like chips.  Ingredients: Okanagan Apples. Perfect! Francis and I are going to savour these because they were extremely pricey. Definitely worth it though.  We also bought an organic cucumber, organic apples and raw, creamed honey (that one was for Francis).

On the way home we stopped at Fairway to grab a couple other things to put together lunch.  We had tacos! Mexican veggie ground round, black beans, lettuce, grape tomatoes, red onion, avocado, cilantro and salsa topped on corn tortillas made in the Comox Valley.  They were delicious.

Now I'm off to do some more planning for the week of teaching ahead.  I'm teaching a grade 3 class and loving it but man is there a lot of prep.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday,



  1. That sounds lovely! I hope school is going well for you. Did you know that they are doing a Wednesday market too! I haven't gone yet but I will report back! xo

    1. School is going very well...I am extremely busy though. Get to school around 7:15 and leave around 4 everyday. Just a lot of prep. I didn't know about the Weds market!!!!! That's awesome :) Please let me know if it is worth going to :)

    2. Well I hope you find some time for fun in your busy schedule ! I will check out the market either this week or next! :-)

  2. I love being all touristy in Vic (or any city for that matter)! Sounds like you guys had an awesome, relaxing Sunday :)

    1. I do too! It's just so much fun :) It was an awesome Sunday!! I need more of them :)
