Trout Lake – Sept 20
It’s Organic Week! Trout Lake has the most organic farmers of all of the Vancouver Farmers Markets. This is where it all began 20 years ago and where many of them still keep on coming, week after week, bringing you certified organic, sustainably grown delicious food.

Or just talk to these intrepid farmers:
Stoney Paradise | Organic Farm Connection | Forstbauer Family Natural Food Farm | Lowland Herb Farm | Sapo Bravo Organics | Shalefield Organic Gardens | Helmer Organic Farm | Klippers Organic Acres | Langley Organic Growers | Harvey’s Orchards & Snowy Mtn Organics | Forrest Nelson Certified Organic Produce | Stein Mountain Farm | Golden West Farms | Specialty Mushroom Growers Coop | Soban Organic Farm at Yarrow Ecovillage | Apple Lane Orchards
That’s right – Apple Lane Orchards! Rod from Denman Island is coming tomorrow with his heritage apples – we missed him last year, but he tells us this is a bumper crop season. If you’ve never tried his apples, make sure to grab a sample. You’ll walk out with a crate, we promise.
