Farms & Markets
The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region is home to some of Canada's most productive farms and inviting markets.
Taste fresh produce and wander past colourful stacks of fruits and veggies at Vancouver’s bustling Granville Island Public Market, or explore Fraser Valley farms on a self-guided Circle Farm Tour.
Seasonally, look for sweet corn and cranberries from the Fraser Valley (this area produces 90% of Canada’s blueberries), peaches and nectarines from Okanagan orchards, artisan cheeses and jams, fresh eggs, and seafood. Crafts and jewellery often spice up markets as well.
Most markets are seasonal and open on weekends, and there are some winter markets. To visit farms and meet the farmers, follow a Circle Farm Tour, including routes around Abbotsford, Langley, Chilliwack, Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge and Agassiz/Harrison Mills.

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.
