Farms & Markets
Experience Quesnel's long agricultural history by touring local farms and ranches that combine both traditional and modern farming techniques, exploring the farmers market, or visiting the Quesnel Agricultural Fair and Exhibition.
The North Cariboo Farm Tour includes two farms and two ranches, featuring opportunities to hand-pick fresh vegetables and strawberries, sample boreal amber birch syrup, learn to spin and weave wool, decipher a corn maze, and even hike with llamas. At the farmers market, open Saturdays from May to October, buy in-season produce, flowers, and baked goods from more than 30 vendors. The Quesnel Agriculture Fair and Exhibition held every September celebrates the bounty of summer.
