At your market this week: 

Farmers will be bringing all your favourites: eggs and cheese, peaches and plums,tomatoes and apples, squash and peppers, beef and fish and more!

Share with Your Neighbours: 

Join Vancouver Farmers Markets and the BCAFM in our quest to raise $6,600 for the “Share With Your Neigbours” farmers market nutrition coupon program. By donating a single $5 market money token, you can help lower-income seniors and families purchase quality nutritious food at BC farmers markets. The “Share With Your Neighbours” program provides lower-income seniors and families who are enrolled in cooking and skill building programs with coupons each week to spend on fish, meat, eggs, vegetables, fruit, cheese, nuts and fresh cut herbs at their local farmers market. By donating to this campaign, you can help build a healthier community with greater food security. Stop by the Info Booth and share the wealth this Sunday.
