Steveston Farmers & Artisan Market opens for new season in new location
02 May 2016
The Steveston Farmers & Artisans Market (SFAM) is gearing up for a ninth year starting on Sunday, May 8th, 2016, and will operate from 10:00am to 3:00pm two Sundays each month through October. This year will see the SFAM change location from the Gulf of Georgia Cannery to the Steveston Community Centre parking lot.
“We’ve got a great mix of vendors lined up for this year’s summer season including several new vendors along with returning customer favourites,” says Johanna Stewart, Chair of the SFAM Committee. “This is the perfect place to meet with your neighbours, bring guests and connect with the people growing the food we eat."
The popular Steveston village attraction will continue to offer an array of carefully selected vendors selling fresh produce, baked goods and tasty treats, and unique handicrafts including jewellery, skin care products, clothing and more. Opening day also includes children’s activities and entertainment, and a special craft for the kids to make for Mother’s Day.
Market vendors come from as close as Steveston and travel from as far as the Fraser Valley and Okanagan. The market will feature fresh farmed produce that will become more varied and plentiful as fields and orchards ripen over the summer, and food producers including natural and organic cheeses, meat and poultry products.
Enjoy a leisurely walk around the market and get to know the vendors in your community market. There is something special for everyone at the Steveston Farmers & Artisans Market.
