Mount Pleasant vendor of the week!

This Sunday is the Fall Fair at #MPFM! This week we are featuring a Vancouver Farmers Market staple, and #MPFM crowd favorite – Taves Family Farms Applebarn!

#MPFM regulars may best know Applebarn for their apples, peppers, and heirloom tomatoes – but this week Applebarn will feature a Pumpkin Patch and an assortment of tasty treats produced at their farm including caramel apples, caramel corn, apple chips, and fresh apple cider!

We chatted with Kelsi of Applebarn to learn more about the Farm and their produce: 

Where is the Farm located and how long has it been in operation? 

Taves Family Farm is located in Abbotsford, and we are celebrating our 25th anniversary this year!

What is your most popular item? 

Personally, I love the variety of apples we produce and our heirloom tomatoes, but the most popular customer item is definitely the $6 fill-a-bag pepper challenge.

What do you love about #MPFM? 

We were one of the first vendors at #MPFM and we really love it here. The people are so friendly, Mount Pleasant is a great community.

Come and visit the Pumpkin Patch this Sunday at the 8th ave entrance to #MPFM! Applebarn will also be offering $1 off pepper bags and 2 bags for apples for $10 for Vancouver Farmers Market members.

 Taves Family Farm Applebarn in Abbotsford features a country store, u-pick apples, and a pumpkin patch, for more information check out their website www.tavesfamilyfarms.com
