    All that fresh local fruit and veg…. yum! Not like the stuff that travels thousands of miles and is completely tasteless. Especially blueberries.

  167. jamilleSaturday, June 29th, 2013 — 3:47pm PDT

    Berries are the best!!!

  168. Kelsey IrelandSaturday, June 29th, 2013 — 6:40pm PDT

    Well, I have to vote for @ErinIreland for being the best local sweet treat! What started as a family get-together favourite, has blossomed into an amazing local banana bread empire! I always buy a delicious loaf when I come across it around Vancouver. Way to go, cousin!

    It’s so hard to pick just one because every other week what is in season changes! So far I have really enjoyed fresh kale, strawberries and mustard greens. I’m really looking forward to beans, purple carrots, apples and beets. :). I have to give a shout out to the UBC Farm. That place is a real gem! <3
