From Trout Lake to the West End, Main Street to Kerrisdale, weekend markets are hopping in the summer months around Vancouver. They have the best local produce and hand-crafted goodies from May to October. The offerings now continue as Your Local Farmers Market Society presents the Winter Farmers Market along with a Holiday Market next month.

Operations Manager Roberta LaQuaglia told me that at a winter market you can find root crops and hardy greens, apples and pears, greenhouse veggies, cheese, meat, seafood, baking, and preserves. Christmas trees will also be available from Bees Knees in Chilliwack.
