trout_lakeFor the last 20 years, Vancouver Farmers Markets have fed people and created community.

We are a registered non-profit society that supports small farm production, nourishes community and connects neighbours.

Founded in 1995, Vancouver Farmers Markets (VFM) has grown to become one of Canada’s leading organizers of farmers markets, with nine weekly markets that support over 250 producers and host 450,000 shoppers per year.


When you shop at a Vancouver Farmers Market, you’re not just buying fresh, delicious food directly from local producers – you’re taking an active part in the local food revolution, and helping to create a sustainable food system in Vancouver and BC. That means helping to feed people in our region, supporting the local economy, and protecting our local environment and farmland for decades to come.

Along with providing us core funds, a.k.a. the “meat and potatoes” of our operations, the support of folks like yourself help us create thriving community spaces that serve as access points for healthy food, wellness education, neighbourhood arts and culture, and social change. The proceeds of VFM’s giving program currently benefit the following:
