Vancouver Farmers Markets Summer Kick Off 2017
A friendly reminder that the Vancouver Farmers Markets Summer Kick Off 2017 is fast approaching!
Fans of fresh rejoice – Vancouver’s fave summer markets return next Saturday, May 6th!
Despite all of the dreary weather delaying early spring crops, Vancouver Farmers Markets(VFM) have some exciting things in store for market shoppers this season, including a packed-out roster of new vendors and a brand new Saturday market at Riley Park, starting June 24th!
Vancouver’s fun and festive community markets make it easy for shoppers to find healthy, local food options in their own neighbourhood – direct from the farmer who grew them – every week. With over 270 family farms & artisanal producers on our roster, shoppers can explore a wide range of local, BC-grown options for every budget at our seven weekly summer locations.
Where else can you find just-picked seasonal produce, unique & heirloom varieties of fruits and veggies, ethically-raised, grass-fed dairy, meat, & eggs, sustainable seafood, craft beer, wine, & spirits, artisanal foods & craft, and delicious food truck offerings all in one place?
By shopping at Vancouver Farmers Markets, our shoppers aren’t just buying fresh, delicious food directly from local producers – they’re also making a better choice for the environment, supporting the local food system, and contributing more than $15 million in direct and indirect benefits to the local and regional economy.
Mount Pleasant’s Farmers Market is located at Dude Chilling Park, 2390 Brunswick St, and is open Sunday from 10am to 2pm. See below for details regarding Farmers Markets located in East Vancouver or visit http://eatlocal.org/markets/!
