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.

Camelot Vineyards began as an orchard and was owned and operated by Ruth and the late Robert Young Senior for almost 40 years.
In 1996, while keeping it in the family, Robert Young Jr. and his wife Denise, decided to take over the business. Exactly 10 years later in October 2006, a huge decision was made to remove all of the trees and replant the acreage with a vineyard. Following this, Camelot Winery was erected.

The Crazy Cow Kids Corral is a farm, with kids in mind. Check out activities such as the corn barn and bury yourself in corn or milk "Betsy" the cow and climb up the tree house and slide out.
Ride a John Deere trike and play for hours in the giant sandbox or challenge each other to a duck race using old fashioned water pumps to propel your duck down the water trough. Kids will also love our maze and driving the old truck.
Great fun for kids ages 2-10 years.

Inspiration led myself, Kaylan Madeira, and my wonderful other half, Jo Schneider, to start our own small-batch, hand-crafted artisan cider. Fairview Cider is crafted using a unique blend of organic French and English cider apples, grown straight from our orchard in Cawston, BC.
From orchard to glass our apple ciders Pippin and Kingston are created with a blend of dessert and traditional cider apples. Our Blush cider is our fun take on traditional cider blended with organic Santa Rosa Plums. Our tasting room also features our Sparkling Apple perfect for sitting in our picnic area with the kids.
