Imagine no more. This Must Be Victoria BC!

Hello! My name is Della Credicott, your inside source here in Victoria. When I first moved here nearly 25 years ago, I fell in love with the city, the scenery, the weather and the seemingly endless variety of things to do.

And the markets! So many markets where independent artisans, makers and producers sell their goods. From unique, hand-crafted items to products from local farmers, butchers, vintners, distillers, brewers and more, Victoria BC markets are alive with variety and creativity. There’s so much to discover!

So how do you find them?

You already did when you found Must Be Victoria. I’m here to help!

Whether you are looking for something to do, or something to buy (or both!), I’ll help you:

  • find tickets to all the popular attractions
  • connect with locals who have the equipment, skills and knowledge to ensure your experiences are memorable
  • connect with makers who knit, crochet, sew, paint, grow, bake, ferment, distill....you get the point....to produce incredible creations you will want to stuff into your suitcase (many creators will also ship if required).

I have always been passionate about connecting people whether it is for a job, a place to live or another person with shared interests and that's how this site developed. I am taking my passion for connections to help ensure your West Coast vacation is unforgettable by linking you with the people whose experiences and creations you desire.

Are you ready?
