Southlands, Canada’s largest agrihood, is set to launch its weekly farmers’ market starting this Saturday, June 19, in Tsawwassen.

The event is hosted by Southlands Grange Centre for Farming and Food, a social enterprise bringing the community and farmers together to reimagine the food system.

Visitors are invited to experience Southland’s farm-to-table lifestyle in an open-air hub.

The market itself will feature tons of fresh local produce from Southland’s local farmers, and Salt & Harrow, an organic farm in the Tsawwassen area.

This event will also offer tons of artisan goods for sale, including jewellery, wine and meats, and other foods from vendors.

The list of vendors includes:

  •  Salt & Harrow Far
  • Rai Produce
  • Nook Play Studio
  • Sugarplum Shortbread
  • KAAI Artisan Chocolate
  • Nectaro
  • Canada Mead Brewing
  • Dragonscales Journals
  • Rai Produce
  • Solasta Chocolate
  • Dos Amigos Food Truck
  • Marhaba Food Truck
  • Bannock Queen

To top it all off, entertainment and pop-up children’s art classes will be delivered by Nook Play Studio. These classes will be 40 minutes long for families to enjoy while visiting the market.

There’s also plenty of activities for visitors to enjoy while visiting the Southlands area.

You can walk around Market Square and view the Earthwise allotment gardens on display, visit their restored Red Barn, enjoy coffee at Prado Cafe, or even rent e-bikes to cruise around Boundary Bay.

So make sure to join the fun and stop by any Saturday starting June 19 until December 18 from 10 am to 2 pm.
