“Very interesting building but many empty shops”
Review of Market Square

Market Square
Ranked #56 of 139 things to do in Victoria
Attraction details
Reviewed June 2, 2015 via mobile

The building is a hollow rectangle with shop frontage on several levels. Not all shops are open with scattered vacant shops. The goods are very diverse and lots of boutique specialty shops. The place is worth a visit to see the building and the square in the middle is used as a market on weekends which would be fun. Otherwise the shopping is fairly ordinary.

Unique shopping area of downtown, suggest that everyone has a quick look at this historic setting / shopping area of Victoria. We love walking / shopping or dining in this area of town.

Market square is probably the most interesting place in Victoria to shop. It is a mix of small local businesses and tourists. I would certainly recommend getting away from the tourist traps and visiting Market Square. The shops around Market Square are also fantastic. It is closer than you think.

I had not been in Markets Square for years, and I guess I should have they seem to have lost some of the old favourite shops. But it has a neat bar (the Drake) and the only Indonesian food stall I know of in our city, plus this year they added a Market on Sundays form 10 - 4. I thought it was a pretty upscale flea market, great vendors, great prices and fun. I hope they continue it next summer.

Fun place for shopping. Unique and unusual stores around an old square. Places to rest outside and a small bandstand which wasn;t being used when I was there but seemed like a great idea. I love this market. Love the old and new mixed in together.
