What’s Fresh at Main St Station – August 24

Earlier this week, farmer Brian Patterson from Shalefield Organic Gardens invited the Vancouver Farmers Market market crew to see his 10 acre organic farm, located just north of the USA boarder (and by “just north” we literally mean just across the street!) Brian proudly showed us his fields of berries, greens, cucumbers & tomatoes and explained that most of his produce at Main St Station is picked the day before or on the same day of the market! Can’t find anything that fresh at a grocery store! Check out our Facebook album for our farm tour photos.
