About This Market

The UBC Farm Farmers’ Market, located at the University of British Columbia Vancouver campus, offers a genuine farm-to-table experience where visitors can indulge in a wide array of local, certified organic, farm-fresh seasonal produce. The market runs three times weekly during the growing season, with Tuesday and Saturday markets at UBC Farm and a Wednesday market at the UBC Bookstore. The Saturday market is especially noteworthy as the only multi-vendor farmers’ market on an active farm in Vancouver, featuring not just UBC Farm produce, but also an assortment of goods from multiple vendors including fruits, vegetables, meats, baked goods, beverages, crafts, and prepared foods, accompanied by live music.

UBC Farm supports sustainable food literacy and fosters a socially just food system. Throughout the season, they offer various programs such as a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box scheme, flower CSA, and wholesale options for local restaurants. They are committed to teaching and providing learning opportunities, as evidenced by their involvement with student programs and research projects.

The market is family-friendly and encourages sustainability by urging visitors to bring their own bags. Payment options include cash, Interac, Visa, and Mastercard. Market-goers can enjoy seasonal U-Pick opportunities, and the UBC Farm participates in the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program, which provides access to fresh local food for families, seniors, and pregnant people facing financial barriers.

For those looking to contribute beyond shopping, UBC Farm offers a membership called “Friend of the Farm,” which comes with special perks at the markets. There are also volunteer opportunities and educational programs for children and adults, solidifying UBC Farm as a community hub for sustainable agriculture and food systems education.

In addition to food, UBC Farm offers flower sales and arrangements for events, promoting sustainable practices even in the floral industry. They also retail seeds through a digital catalogue, ensuring that the seeds are organic, open-pollinated, and regionally adapted.

UBC Farm provides a scenic setting that emphasizes environmental stewardship and community participation, where both locals and visitors can engage with the land, purchase fresh products, and support local agriculture.
