Vancouver lies in one of the most fertile areas in North America, and one of the benefits has been the large number of farmers’ markets offering some fantastic fresh produce. There are good reasons why these markets are popular and visitors come here to browse for special produce such as rainbow beets and heirloom tomatoes. The quality is much higher than what you will find in the grocery store and you may sample many of the delicacies on offer.
Every part of the city has its own farmers’ market. From the oldest and largest on Granville Island, to a dozen smaller sized ones - there is even a special winter farmers’ market. However, there are two markets that truly stand out, offering the ideal combination of market and beach. Enjoy some delicious healthy food, followed by a game of Frisbee on the beach - the perfect way to kick off the weekend.
