Coombs Market


Coombs

We visited the Old Country Market at Coombs, on Vancouver Island.
We have visited the Goats on the roof a few times before.

Old Country Market

“The old country market originated from a modest fruit stand in 1971 and later grew to support a hamburger stand alongside the fruit stand. In 1975 the original building was erected. This was the start of the grass roof. The idea for the grass roof came from then owner, Kristian Graaten. He emigrated here from Norway with his family in the mid 1950’s and longed to see some of the buildings from his home country. Many homes in Norway were built from the sides and slopes of the hills with the roofs built as an extension of the hillside.”Old Country Market

    • I’m glad you like it too 😉

      Thanks, I didn’t know about the goats on the tower at Fairview wine farm in Paarl, it’s so c-u-t-e, have you been there?

      On our way back from B.C. we saw Dave’s Goat Walk, but we didn’t stop as it was too difficult with the caravan.
