This weekend the Vancouver Farmers Markets Harvest Festival will mark the end of the summer market season in the West End with fall food activities for kids, a fall fruit pie competition, a squash beauty contest, and more.
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.
