The Root Cellar

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada


Loving what we do, who we do it with, and who we do it for, since 2008.

Growing up in British Columbia, the family root cellar was a place in our homes where we could always find good quality, garden grown, fresh & preserved foods. Our family owned market operates with a local focus, always buying from as close to home as possible to provide the communities of Victoria with the same.

We have grown since 2008 and now bring you a complete ‘farm fresh, dirt cheap’ shopping experience. Offering the largest selection of produce on Vancouver Island, locally prepared foods, locally sourced and ethically raised meats from our in house butcher, a full service deli in both of our locations as well as an extensive floral department and full scale garden market, along with The Coffee Project at our flagship McKenzie Avenue market.

Simply put, we have a great appreciation for fresh, delicious and nutritious food and healthy lifestyle choices, and we love that you do too.

We look forward to meeting you!
