The Best Farmer’s Markets To Visit This Weekend For National Organic Week

This week September 13 – September 19 is Canada’s National Organic Week. This weekend, head down to your local farmer’s market to support BC growers and fill your fridge with fresh, organic produce!

 

Canada’s National Organic Week is the largest annual celebration of organic food, sustainable farming and products across the country! It’s the perfect opportunity to visit a farmer’s market close to you and support local. These weekend markets around the city are the best spot for you to shop local farmers who you can trust have the freshest produce and sustainable, locally made products.

Lucky for us, apples, cranberries, pears, brussels sprouts, corn, potatoes, nuts and sardines are all in season right now in BC. And if you aren’t wanting to fill your fridge, Vancouver’s farmers markets are home to plenty of pop-up stands from your favourite local retailers like Earnest Ice Cream. You’ll be able to find tons of handmade artisan products, local dairy products, meats – anything you can think of!
