Farms & Markets
Granville Island Market, Vancouver (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Farms and markets have been a part of rural British Columbia life for more than 100 years.
Whether it’s the Fraser Valley, Thompson Okanagan region, or Vancouver Island, many farms welcome visitors for tours and demonstrations. Purchase fresh fruit and produce, just-collected free-range eggs, delicious cheese and milk, and much more.
Touring some of BC's best farms can provide a rather tasty education. It’s a chance to learn about organic farming and other sustainable farming practices – and taste a few samples! The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region has self-guided Circle Farm Tours to follow.
British Columbia also hosts farmers markets in many communities. Most farmers markets take place on weekends from spring through fall, but some places also have winter markets. Markets enable shoppers to meet the farmers and artisans who grew, raised, caught or produced the food for sale. Enjoy this tempting opportunity to taste a bounty of farm-fresh local foods and to browse and buy locally made arts and crafts.

An Okanagan must. This family attraction now bigger! better! Plus booking corporate & group parties. Don't miss 'trapdoor starts' & racing lines unique to Oyama. Total of 7 zipline rides... some fast (clocked 85 km/hr), some high, some long with 180º panoramic lakeviews over Kalamalka Lake plus vineyard vistas over Wood Lake. The shuttle, tours & rope bridges are fun in themselves. 2-3 hrs, a thrill for every age. Best of all, Oyama Zipline is central & within 20 minutes of 20 beaches & parks. Scenic & pleasant routes so typically Okanagan. Within minutes of restaurants, patio bars, farmers' markets, art galleries, shopping.
