Peppers Foods Grocery store is a local favourite in the Cadboro Bay village offering character and history. It’s a community based grocery store that is small in square footage, yet big in terms of product availability, and community spirit. The store sells meat, fish & seafood, dairy, bakery items, delicatessen, flowers, fruit and vegetables, as well as bulk foods. You can also find many specialty items including gluten free products, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Mexican and Kosher foods. Pepper’s Food has is a nice deli in the back and a good variety of grab & go items in the front. Great for UVIC Students who receive a discount on all items at Peppers and popular Gyros park patrons in Cadboro Bay, as it is only a block away. Delivery is also available.
The staff at Peppers are very friendly and the management does its best to accommodate special requests. Party trays and gift baskets are available or can be custom made to order. The prices are a bit higher than the big supermarket chains but the quality and service are exemplary.
