Support the Markets
Vancouver Farmers Markets feed people and create community. We support small farm production, nourish people and connect neighbours.
Thanks to our community of shoppers who are dedicated to local food, food security and sustainability, we’ve run markets in Vancouver successfully for 24 years. In that time, we’ve built up a neighbourhood network of nine weekly farmers markets that host 470,000 shoppers annually, support 270 small scale producers, and keep 6,500 acres of BC farmland in production each year.
As a non-profit organization, there are many ways to support Vancouver Farmers Markets’ work in the community: shop regularly with our producers, become a Market Member, donate to the Fresh to Families Project for low income families, volunteer with us, or sponsor one of our markets. More details on these programs below!
