The BC Farmers’ Market Trail has just been relaunched to help you source fresh local food, and one-of-a kind items this summer.
This definitive guide to 145+ farmers’ markets across the province is a free and easy-to-use online resource for locals and tourists.
It is the most convenient way for people to find and buy local food and discover the best of what each community across BC has to offer.
Every season, over 4000 local farmers and entrepreneurs attend farmers’ markets across the province to showcase the food and goods they’ve grown, made, baked, and raised.
It’s no secret that locally grown food is an important value for the overwhelming majority of British Columbians: recent research shows that 80% of BC shoppers look for and prefer purchasing food that supports their local economy, 79% desire fresh food, and 77% factor in how safe the food they purchase is for consumption.
BC farmers’ markets are all about supporting the local economy – contributing over $150 million in economic benefits annually – with the markets serving as springboards for local farmers and makers to introduce their food and wares to their community.
