BCB HONEY FARM is new to Mt P Market!  They run thousands of hives throughout the Lower Mainland and Peace River in an effort to make B.C. independent from imported bees. Their bees pollinate on a wide variety of crops: blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, and other local crops found in British Columbia. The honey is local and they sale it Raw,Unpasteurized and Unfiltered which makes it great for people with seasonal allergies.

Be sure to stop by and give them a warm Mt P welcome:)

Despite these challenges you’ll find an abundance of fresh produce and new vendors!
