Shopping in the Cowichan Valley is a unique experience where each community has an array of interesting and unique shops and stores.

Places to shop

People who visit Cowichan always return home with something worth cherishing. Fond memories and an album full of photos are a given, but if you’d like something more tactile, your options are limitless. In all of our towns and villages you’ll find a wide variety of mostly independent shops and boutiques, many with one-of-a-kind items and all with friendly and welcoming staff. Everywhere you turn, you’ll find something to catch your eye, from antiques and fine art to First Nations creations, fashions, arts & crafts, jewellery and more. So diverse is the selection in Cowichan, many shopkeepers will tell you they have customers who make an annual pilgrimage here for the shopping alone.
