Want to know more about the food you eat?

 

  • How do you know if your food is nutritious or safe?
  • Do you find that the food available to you in Richmond is personally acceptable and culturally appropriate?
  • Is your food produced in ways that are environmentally sound and socially just?

 

 

Why not ask somebody who knows about these things? Come find our table at the Steveston Farmers & Artisans Market July 6th and 20th, and August 3rd and 17th between 10am and 4pm and talk to our friendly staff about these issues and more. And while you’re there, check out all the food and vendor booths at the market. It’s a great way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon. For more details about the market, you can go to the Steveston Farmers & Artisans Market website.

About the Market

Below is a description of the market taken from their website. Check it out for details about what’s coming up for the market.

“Launched in May, 2008, by the Steveston Community Society, the Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market is a venue where local farmers, artists and craftspersons make their products available in an open, fresh-air environment.

With entertainment playing and vendors striking up light conversation with customers throughout the day, the Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market creates a friendly, social environment for you to spend your afternoon in. Whether you’re buying fresh locally grown produce, grabbing a bite to eat, enjoying the craftsmanship of some of the artisans, or simply strolling through the market enjoying the day, the market has something to offer for everyone.

Our market strives to offer the best in local farm products and unique artisan wares. We offer a wide selection of some of the best farm and artisan products in British Columbia. Our vendors are proud to “Make It, Bake It, Grow It or Catch It” for loyal customers who appreciate buying from, and supporting, local farmers and artisans.

The Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market is uniquely located in the historic seaside village of Steveston, located at the corner of Third Avenue and Moncton Street, adjacent to the Gulf of Georgia Cannery. Steveston is located on the South West tip of Richmond, British Columbia.
