New Vendors @ Hastings Park - Part 1

This year we’re excited to feature some new vendors that are not yet available at any other Vancouver Farmers Market!

Cannoli King

Branching our from their Italia Bakery located kitty-corner to the PNE, Cannoli King brings fresh Sicilian cannolis to the market in a food truck. Their cannolis are filled with sweetened riccotta in a hand rolled, fried shell and dusted with icing sugar. Pair these with a hot coffee from our weekly coffee vendor and you have the perfect mid-morning snack.

Cedar Isle Farm

Cedar Isle Farm is nestled between tall mountains on rich and fertile soil near Agassiz, at the eastern end of the Fraser Valley. They are one of very few local farms that produce certified organic grains. Their products include oats, wheat, and rye, which are rolled, milled into whole grain flour, or available as kernels. Their products are grown and handled with pride and they are delighted to share them with you at the Vancouver Farmers Market.
