You are running out of excuses! This summer there are fantastic Farmer's Markets happening in basically every community in the Greater Vancouver area. There are over 125 Farmers Markets operating in BC!!! Local farmers who are using sustainable growing practices are bringing fresh, nutrient filled, delicious meat and produce TO YOU!
If you haven't been to a market yet, or in a while, get out this weekend. Take the family, enjoy the sunshine, the music, the community atmosphere and THE FOOD. This is without a doubt the best time of year to try out the markets with just about every amazing green, red, yellow, orange and even purple produce in season. You have never tasted anything quite like tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes, peas, berries, peaches, kale, onions, cherries (and the list goes on) that were picked YESTERDAY.
So take the family, have a picnic, support your local food economy and enjoy your local Farmer's Markets.
