Farmers markets operate in every type of community, from cities to suburbs to rural areas, and vary from large, sheltered, year-round markets to a few farmers selling produce out of trucks once a week over the summer.
 

Some good reasons to check out your local farmers market:

  • Buy Local:

    Sustainability is a word that often crops up in conversation these days, and a key aspect is to consume goods grown locally, instead of food trucked in from hundreds or thousands of miles away.

  • Taste Real Flavours:

    Fruits and vegetables here are the freshest and tastiest available. Produce ripens in the field and is brought directly to you.

  • Support Family Farmers:

    Buying directly from the farmer gives them a better return for their produce.

  • Nourish Yourself:

    The fresh produce in grocery stores is often grown using pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and genetic modification. In contrast, food found at a farm market is minimally processed, and many of our farmers go to great lengths to grow the most nutritious produce possible.

  • Know Where Your Food Comes From:

    Meeting and talking to farmers is a great opportunity to learn more about how, when, where and why food is grown.

  • Connect With Community:

    Wouldn’t you rather stroll amid outdoor stalls of fresh produce on a sunny day than roll your cart around a grocery store with artificial lights and piped-in music? Farmers’ markets are community gathering places, where you can bring your children or meet up with friends for coffee.

Make shopping at farmers markets a regular habit. Not only is it good for B.C. farmers – it’s good for you, your family, our environment and your local community.
