Hey Lynn Valley! Now featuring the Artisan Farmers Market! This year the market opened all year round, with vendors selling items inside Lonsdale Quay Market every Saturday and Sunday from 10am-3pm. They also hold markets at Ambleside on Sundays and in Burnaby on Saturdays.
Environmentally the market supports local, handmade BC-produced products, especially farm products to reduce the miles travelled. Vendors individually make sustainable choices beyond the fact that they all sell nearby their places of production. Many farming and food vendors are certified organic. Economically, 95% of the 308 market vendors all live in the Metro Vancouver area and this circulates more money within the area. 100% of the vendors are from BC. “For every $100 spent with a BC local business, $46 is re-circulated back into our BC economy (vs $18 for multi nationals). Lastly socially the market is a community gathering place with outdoor eating, live music, and events weekly. Many of the events build food literacy, and many are focused on children and seniors. #local #artisanmarket #fresh #bcproud
