In Richmond, The Steveston Community Society launched the Steveton Farmers and Artisans Market in May of 2008 and it has been getting bigger and better every year since. A venue where local farmers, artists and craftspersons make their products available in an open, fresh-air environment. It runs on the 1st and 3rd Sundays in May thru September at the corner of Moncton and 3rd Ave from 10 am to 4 pm.
And this Saturday kicks of the first of the Farmers Summer Markets that Vancouverites have to come to love. In May there are 3 different markets opening up for the season across town, with three more opening in June. If you plan on visiting more than 1 market per week it would be a good idea to check out the market membership option. This will get you discounts and member appreciation day benefits.
