This has been the summer of free outdoor movies and farmers markets, and this weekend you’ll get plenty of both. Movie screenings include tributes to Robin Williams on Friday and Sunday in Vancouver, you can hit up up the Vancouver Farmers Markets’ annual Tomato Festival, or visit the Metro Vancouver Garlic Festival for garlic ice cream and more.
