River District’s Farmers Market Returns to SE Vancouver Saturday May 3rd

28 Apr

RiverDistrictMarket2014River District, located at 8683 Kerr Street, will be hosting a farmers market every Saturday starting May 3rd from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm.   For those new to this market, this is generally a smaller market compared to the markets held at Trout Lake and Nat Bailey Stadium.  You can expect to find many local products at the market including produce, plants, baked goods, handmade goods, works by local artisans, live music, coffee and you will often find activities for the kids.   The market is located at the foot of Kerr Street, one block South of SE Marine Drive and is easily accessible by car, bike or transit. The market will run every Saturday until October 18th.

River District Farmers Market Starts Saturday, May 4th

RiverDistrictFarmersMarket2013 River District Farmers Market begins this Saturday May 4th at the foot of Kerr Street in SE Vancouver (8683 Kerr Street).  If unfamiliar with the area, you only need to travel one block South of SE Marine Drive along Kerr Street and you are at East Kent Avenue.  Once there, you will see Romer’s Burger Bar to your right and just beyond it a view of the Fraser River.

After an inaugural first run last year, this Farmers Market is back for another season every Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. until October 26th.  There will be more vendors on hand with fresh local produce, prepared food, local artisans showcasing  handmade products as well as musical entertainment.

This is a great scenic spot to cycle or walk along the riverfront, or stop in at Romer’s Burger Bar situated right next to the market for brunch, snack or early dinner after the market. I know burgers are their specialty, but if you don’t try their Whiskey Doughnuts, you have missed something truly heavenly. I must confess I have lived along the Fraser River in SE Vancouver for many years and this is a unique and special place.  If you haven’t already checked out this secret little oasis tucked away in East Vancouver, the Farmers Market is a perfect time to make your way down.
