There is something about going to your local farmer’s market and buying food directly from the people who grow it. It is not only local, but simple and none of this round-about-travelling that most of our food takes to get to our plates in order to maximize profits. According to the BC Association of Farmers’ Markets web site, there are over 105 farmers’ markets throughout British Columbia. You will get to meet Mary who makes and bakes scrumptious pies and John hauls in the many varieties of potatoes and delicious heirloom tomatoes that you hardly see in your supermarket grocery store chain. Along with their Farmer’s Market directory, you can also check out related events and popular recipes submitted by members.
