You can always find fresh veggies and a staggering array of regionally-produced goods and fantastic eats year-round in Metro Vancouver, but our main farmers market season is spring to fall.

These are the summer markets where you’ll wander the stalls under (fingers crossed!) sunny skies, loading your reusable bags with the bounty of the region and the season. You’ll find all kinds of fresh produce, edible goods, artisan wares, art, events, special activities, live music, and plenty to see and do week after week from the North Shore to the heart of Surrey–and just about everywhere in-between.

These 23 markets happening in Metro Vancouver on varying dates from April through October will help you keep in touch with your farmer and what’s in season on your plate.
