Rancho Vignola – Vancouver Island Harvest Sale – November 26 & 27, 2021

For the 8th consecutive year, Rancho Vignola is hosting its Vancouver Island Harvest Sale at the Mary Winspear Center in Sidney. Many now have come to know this yearly occasion and anticipate its return with glee. Our main operations happen at Rancho Vignola’s headquarters in Armstrong BC, shipping fresh from harvest nuts and dried fruit to customers around the country in the fall. What makes this event special is that over the period of 2 days we are able to bring those products to our community. Everyone can then see for themselves what we have to offer. We are so proud of every single product, having carefully chosen each of them for its quality. Carving strong relationships with framers guarantees us reliability and consistency in the produce of unfailing caliber.

We will have over 100 products available at the sale. Just to name a few: Almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, walnuts, pine nuts, chia seeds, Austrian pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cranberries, dates, goji berries, ginger, apricots, mango, pineapple, raisins, golden berries, figs. We are also bringing an array of mixes, chocolate-covered nuts and fruit, flavoured nuts, and gourmet gifts. Our extensive list of products has something for everyone—foodies, families, and folks who just like knowing where their food comes from.


Cloe and Gareth of the Vignola family live here in Victoria. We love organizing this sale. So many elements make it enjoyable. Working with the best quality food, of course, is the base of it all but it is the human aspect that keeps us showing up year after year even through the tricky times we had to navigate since the beginning of the pandemic. We couldn’t do it without our green aproned local crew. It is heartwarming to see, the same team of people who we have come to know well, returning to work with us over this short period each year. For one, they do enjoy the work, but most importantly they are there to fill their pantry too, they know to hold off until it is the season of harvest to ensure they have the best possible ingredients for the upcoming months. Like many customers, they cannot go back to store-bought nuts. You can ask any of them what their favourite items are and the creative ways they use them every day.

We are also very lucky to have such a wonderful venue to collaborate with. The Mary Winspear Center was so helpful last year when we had to turn on a dime and come up with an outdoor model to welcome our customers. This year again our customers will be welcomed at arrival at MWC, with the large rear courtyard set as our staging area for product display and order pickup.  All you will need is to do is fill out your personal order form and hand it over to us. We will fill your order while you wait, making it a contactless shopping experience.

It is such a privilege to be able to share our passion for quality ingredients with our community on Vancouver Island. From walnuts so fresh that they taste like cream, to all-natural, flavour-packed dried mangoes to our premium chocolate-covered nuts, there is something for everyone! Whether you have been buying from us for many years or will be joining us for the first time, we look forward to connecting with you, sharing ideas, and helping you discover the world of Rancho Vignola’s seasonal, new crop nuts, dried fruit, seeds and more!
