Farmers Market opens Wednesday
The Langley Community Farmers Market just keeps on growing.
On Wednesday, May 23, the fourth annual market will open in the courtyard at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, showcasing fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, live entertainment, and much more.
Each Wednesday, until Oct. 3, the market will take place at Kwantlen’s Langley Campus, 20901 Langley Bypass, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
In addition to choosing from a wide selection of fresh produce, baked artisan breads and treats, prepared jams, pickles, and preserves, visitors will be able to talk with vendors and discover where their food comes from, how it’s grown, and maybe learn a thing or two about cooking some favorite dishes.
“This is the time of year when our attention turns into anticipation as we count down the days until the opening of the farmers market,” said John McKendry, president and vice-chancellor of Kwantlen Polytechnic University.
“The market has reached a level of success that is not usually attained by such ventures, and I think having the market on campus has a lot to do with that success. We hope the community will join us on campus and enjoy the wonderful produce available from local producers each week.”
Bring your own basket or shopping bag, and peruse the more than 30 vendors who “make it, bake it, or grow it” and sell the very best that the region has to offer.
The Langley Community Farmers Market Society (LCFMS) is a non-profit organization that coordinates the farmers market with its operations based on the Kwantlen Langley campus.
It contributes to the economic viability of local farms and businesses, allows producers and customers to interact and provides public education about food security and availability.
