It’s that time of year again, when the tastiest outdoor market in Langley opens for the season on Wednesday, May 21 from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Kwantlen Polytechnic University courtyard.

Now into its sixth year, the Langley Community Farmers Market is growing in size and popularity.

“We have more farmers than ever before and plenty of new and exciting editions,” said Benedict Canale, market manager.

The family and pet-friendly market will celebrate its opening for the season with free cake at 4 p.m., live music, face painting and more on Wednesday.

More than 40 vendors have signed up this year, offering everything from fresh cut flowers, plants and local produce to organic local meat, chocolates, cheeses, breads, soups and salads.

“You truly can find everything you need at the market,” said Canale.

This year, the market is open later, until 6:30 p.m., to help encourage people coming from work.

There is also three food trucks there including Langley’s Seasonal 56, Hotties Pasta Bar and new is Big Red Poutine.

When liquor rules change this summer, the market is looking into whether or not it can allow the sale of wine, with two local wineries already expressing interest.

The farmer’s market will be open rain or shine every Wednesday from 2-6:30 p.m. until Oct. 8. The market is still looking for musicians and volunteers. Go to langleycommunityfarmersmarket.com.
