Yaletown – September 25

With only two weeks left in our Yaletown market season we want to say thank you for supporting the Yaletown Farmers Market all summer long! Its dedicated shoppers like you who make this all possible!

We’re excited that the last two weeks of the market will have something extra special just in time for thanksgiving…you guessed it – Cranberries!  You’ll recognize Jamie who’s usually standing under the Hopcott Premium Meats tent but this week he will be next door at Cranberry Meadows! Have questions about cranberries or maybe you’re after a recipe to impress those guests – he will be able to help!

Its Organic Week!  A celebration of organic farming, food, and products and the positive impact it has on the environment. Want to learn more about why organic farming is important? Check this out!
