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.

There is something special in the air at 40 Knots Vineyard & Estate Winery.
With the Strait of Georgia and the Comox to Powell River ferry just a stone's throw away, the site is alive with sounds of barking sea lions, singing birds, and planes from the neighbouring air force base. An 18 acre pristine vineyard and winery offer a relaxing place for visitors.
Two unique wine portfolios are on offer. The 40 Knots estate-grown wines include a sparkling, table wines, and a fortified wine that are fresh, lively, and aromatic. Two wines are presented under the Stall Speed label, crafted from Okanagan-grown fruit.

Oliver, British Columbia
Established in 1959, Covert Farms Family Estate Winery is located on 650 acres of bench land and winemaker Gene Covert is a 3rd generation farmer who worked this land with his father and grandfather.
Our certified organic estate vineyards are influenced by the majestic McIntyre Bluff and managed with biodynamic practices. We craft wines with minimal intervention, using natural fermentation when possible to focus on vineyard and fruit. Our white wines display purity of fruit and a crisp natural acidity coveted by other growers, and ultra low yields result in terroir-focused artisan reds that are luscious and age-worthy.

Your visit to Kilby General Store Museum will take you back to the 'good old days,' to the time when the Country Store was a familiar sight in rural British Columbia. You will see long forgotten brand names on the crowded shelves, goods of all descriptions hanging from the ceiling & the old pot-bellied stove near the traditional checker-board where you can match your skill with the storekeeper. From the time you open the squeaky screen door until you reluctantly leave to re-enter the hurried pace of modern day living, your experience will be an adventure into the past. This 2 hectare (5 acre) heritage attraction includes a 1906 General Store, Manchester House Hotel, Post Office, First Nations exhibit, friendly farm animals cafe & gift shop.
