Market News

Yaletown – August 28

It’s the end of August and we have reached the peak season for peaches. If you haven’t picked up this delightful juicy fruit yet, don’t miss your chance!

At the market this week: we will see peaches, strawberries, peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, garlic, potatoes, herbs, cauliflower, artichokes, mushrooms, cheese, beef, fish and much more! Newly arriving the past couple weeks are…apples! We’re excited to start to see more varieties in September, keep an eye out for them.

New this week to Yaletown is Vista D’oro Farms & Winery bringing traditional hand-crafted wines! Ask Lee & Patrick how it all began for them in the Fraser Valley while having a taste of this truly unique wine.

Share with Your Neighbours: Thanks for your help so far – this is our last week left in our campaign to raise money to send low-income families and seniors to the farmers market. You can drop off your tokens at the Information Booth or donate online!
