Member Appreciation Day in Yaletown – July 30

It’s MAD!

Yesterday was our official birthday – we’re 20 years old! Wednesday, July 29, was proclaimed Vancouver Farmers Markets Day across the city, by Mayor Gregor Robinson! We’re celebrating by bringing you Member Appreciation Day (MAD) one week early!

MAD is just one of many benefits to becoming a VFM member! MAD markets are the first market of the month (with the exception of this week!) where most vendors offer special deals to VFM card carrying members as a way of saying ‘thanks’ for your support. Sign up today online or at any of the markets information tents to take advantage of all the great deals at the market this week. Click here for more information.

Whether you’re heading out camping for the weekend or sticking around the city for the Celebration of Lights or Vancouver Pride, the market has something for you. Pick up your camping grocery list or the ingredients for your Pride BBQ. We’ve got the freshest fruit & vegetables, chicken, eggs, fish, cheese, treats, snacks and so much more!
