Fall/Winter Schedule for East Vancouver Farmers Markets

5 Oct

Pumpkins & Squash

There is something about the Farmers Market in the fall when many grocery stores seem to have less local produce available. In the the fall and winter, going to the Farmers Market is one of my favourite things. Something about bundling up in the fresh brisk air and wandering about. Of course, there is so much more than produce at these markets.  This coming week you can expect to find squash, cranberries, soup, breads, cheese, eggs and so much more.   As for which farmers markets are on when and for how long this fall and winter,  see the rundown below: 

Main Street:  This market has finished for this season. Last one was Wednesday, October 2nd.

Mount Pleasant Farmers Market:  Has only 2 more weekends. You can still catch it Sunday, October 6th and October 12th from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Guelph Street between 7th and 8th Avenue.

Trout Lake Farmers Market:  This market continues at John Hendry Park on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. until  October 19th.

River District Farmers Market:  Four more markets to go for this season.  You can catch this market on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the River District, 8683 Kerr St, in SE Vancouver until October 26th.

Nat Bailey Stadium Farmers Market: The Winter Market starts November 2nd at Nat Bailey Stadium for its third season.  Vancouver Farmers Market is planning a great vendor line up  as well as hot food choices and heated seating areas. You will be able to find vendor listings for each week over the winter on the Vancouver Farmers Market website.  This Winter Market will run until April 26th with one day off on Saturday,  December 28th.

Whichever market you choose to visit, come out and support these local vendors!
