Farmers markets bring together a community of farmers, fishermen, artisans, and food producers who supply locally-grown foods to neighbourhoods throughout Vancouver.
Farmers markets have grown dramatically in number and popularity in recent years, and will continue to expand in different neighbourhoods across the city.
