It’s Vancouver farmers market season. Whatever you’re looking for, I guarantee one of the seven markets–each with its own personality– has it. The first round of neighbourhood farmers markets (Trout Lake, Kitsilano) opened in May. The West End Farmers Market kicked off last Saturday, June 1. Then the fancy-pants Shangri-La Farmers Market launched in Coal Harbour.

This week, the Main Street Station Farmers Market opens Wednesday, June 5 bringing farm-fresh produce and specialty prepared foods to the 1100 block of Station Street along Thornton Park near the Main Street Skytrain Station. Stop by on your way home from work between 3pm and 7pm to grab some goodies for dinner. With today’s sunshine, a False Creek picnic is another appealing option.
