Vancouver food events in March reconnect us with healthy eating habits while honing our 100-mile-diet chops


By most accounts, the end of the world is at hand: birds falling from the sky; floods; earthquakes; Palin/McCain 2012. March offers a few opportunities to hone your post-apocalyptic survival skills with workshops on canning and chicken husbandry.

Winter farmers market

Still going strong, you’ll find the Winter Farmers Markets every weekend by Nat Bailey Stadium [map]. Check out this list of market vendors.


Healthy Chef Competition and Dinner

Although technically it’s a trade event, the public is welcome to come and taste what Vancouver Healthiest chefs have to offer. It’s a dinner event and calls for ‘business’ attire. Tickets are $85.


Dining Out for Life

Make a difference for people with HIV/AIDS just by eating in fancy restaurants: 230 restaurants to choose from, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. See for more information.
