Hastings Park Winter Farmers Market

Located within a thriving community close to the highway and the Second Narrows Bridge, the Hastings Park Farmers Market is a perfect place to stop and shop.

Find us between the Forum and the Agrodome and stroll down tree-lined pathways, wander through the Italian garden and stop by the sanctuary pond, bring the kids bundled up and play in the playground, or drop into the skateboard park if you’re brave! There’s plenty to do for everyone in the family.

The Hastings Park Farmers Market features a great selection of local produce; nursery items, fish, meat & dairy; artisan prepared foods, baking and treats; the best in local crafts, and of course, hot food trucks.

Veggie of the Week: Dandelion Greens

Far from your average garden weed, dandelion greens are packed full of nutrients including calcium and iron. These greens are delicious additions to spring salads, they blend well in smoothies and are tasty sauteed. Pickup a bunch this Sunday from Ossome Acres! Need dandelion inspiration?

Membership Appreciation Day!

Whole Foods Giving Day

On Wednesday, April 5th, Whole Foods Market will donate 5$ of sales to Vancouver Farmers Markets to expand the Fresh to Families project – a healthy eating initiative for low-income families and seniors in BC that supports small farms and producers across the province.

VFM Direct

VFM Direct connects local farmers and producers with chefs and food service buyers through an online marketplace and delivery services.  Keeping the farmer in the equation means sales to wholesale customers are more financially viable.  VFM Direct works with buyers from restaurants, food service companies and retail across Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley and was started in 2015. This weekend, is pooling crops from local farms that can’t make a stall financially feasible with a limited amount of produce so they’re aggregating their product for Hastings Park! Check their stall out this weekend and learn more about the program and the farmers VFM Direct supports.
