With such a wide range of vendors and products being sold, the Vancouver Fall Farmers Markets are definitely not just a great place to buy fresh fruits and veggies from local BC farmers. You can also find delicious baked goods, granola, homemade jam and honey, fresh hot sauces and dips, free range and organic meat and seafood, local cheese, hazelnuts, and even homemade pâté and chocolate. Additionally, there are vendors selling non-edibles such as jewelry, facial products, cutting boards, wool products, candles, and soaps. A full list of vendors is available on the Vancouver Farmers Markets website. Not only are the Vancouver Fall Farmers Markets great places to purchase these products, but they are also wonderful spaces that encourage a sense of community in the city and instil an appreciation and support system for local vendors and their goods.
