Thought you could only get farm-fresh local fruits, veggies, eggs, and meats during the summer? Think again! Vancouver Winter Farmers Markets are a great opportunity to shop for farm-to-table goodness every Saturday and Sunday during the winter season.

On Saturdays, Nat Bailey Stadium is transformed into a food-lovers paradise when 70+ farmers and merchants flock to the stadium for BC’s largest winter farmers market. Featuring winter veggies, eggs, cheeses, breads, and craft alcohol, it’s a great place to shop for your weekly groceries.

Located near the PNE Fairgrounds, this market features over 20 vendors hawking their delicious seasonal goods.
