The festival will take place Saturday, October 20, 2012 at the West End Market (1100 block of Comox) from 9:00am to 2:00pm. Pick up pumpkins, squash, root vegetables, and enjoy samples. Check it out as this market won’t return again until June of next year.

A variety of fall and winter markets are just getting started this season which means you can still pick up a bounty of local ingredients in select locations.

Follow Vancouver Farmers Markets on Twitter for more information about this event and the new seasonal markets that will be opening up.
