With the warmer months come Surrey’s bounty of fresh local produce just waiting to be devoured. After all, 30 percent of Surrey’s land is dedicated to Agriculture and committed to local food-growing. So it’s no surprise that there are a variety of Farmers Markets peppered across the city where you can pick-and-choose your weekly produce pickup.
Clayton Community Farmer’s Market
7003 188 Street
Last year was the inaugural year for the Clayton Community Farmer’s Market, and this popular community market is back and better than ever! Visit the market every other Sunday from May 5th to October 6th, and shop at over 55 vendors, let the kids play in the Family Fun Zone and be sure to pick up your Market Dollars to use throughout the market.
Cloverdale Market Days
176th Street from 56A to 58 Ave
Taking over downtown Cloverdale, the Cloverdale Market Days take over the neighbourhood five times per season: May 25th, June 22nd, July 27th, August 24th and September 21st. You can expect multiple live performances at any one time, local vendors, food trucks, and family friendly activities. New for 2019 look for an artists corner where local artisans from the Surrey Arts Council will be displaying their work for sale.
512 172 Street
The Kingfisher Market truly gives you that farm to table experience. Open from mid-June into the Autumnal season, this neighbourhood farm provides the opportunity to shop for fresh sustainably grown veggies, flowers, meat, cheese, bread, eggs and honey. The vegetables, grown right on their farm, are hand-picked every Tuesday for optimum freshness. You can even visit the cows and chickens who call the farm home, and see where the harvest is hauled from.
Surrey Urban Farmers Market
Taking place every Wednesday from June 15th to October 5th at the Surrey Civic Plaza, the Surrey Urban Farmers Market brings an array of vendors to Surrey’s City Centre. Local vendors, food trucks, farmers and food producers sell their goodies weekly, along with local artists and artisans. Enjoy live music, community workshops and kids activities.
