East Gwillimbury Farmers Market

About This Market

The Vancouver Farmers Market is a network of vibrant, community-focused markets that provide a platform for small farms and producers to sell fresh and local food to the public. Established in 1995, these markets are dedicated to building community connections, feeding people, and supporting the local economy.

The market operates at various locations throughout Vancouver, including Hastings Park, Downtown, Trout Lake, West End, Kitsilano, Riley Park (in both summer and winter), and Mount Pleasant, though some locations might be closed for the season. For instance, Riley Park – Winter operates from November 4th to March 30th on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm, showcasing a range of fresh, in-season produce and goods.

The Fresh to Families Program is a cornerstone initiative of the Farmers Market that emphasizes the importance of fresh, locally-grown food being accessible to everyone, particularly those with lower incomes. This program not only supports the nutritional needs of families but also directly benefits British Columbia farmers and producer vendors.

Committed to fostering a sense of community and environmental sustainability, the Vancouver Farmers Market hosts events like a free swap and emphasizes the importance of projects such as Farmers Markets Week.

Based in their Main Street office in Vancouver, BC, the Vancouver Farmers Market warmly welcomes new vendors, while offering programs and opportunities for the community to support through membership, donations, sponsorships, and volunteering.

In their efforts to acknowledge and respect the indigenous heritage of the region, they operate on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ / sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. The organization stands as a testament to what can be achieved when locals and consumers come together to celebrate and sustain local food cultures and economies.
