Abbotsford Farm and Country Market
The summertime Abbotsford Farm and Country Market runs from early May until the fall. Being in the heart of the Fraser Valley – the Lower Mainland’s main farming region – the produce at the Abbotsford market tends to be extra fresh and very local.
Where and When is the Market
The Abbotsford Farm and Country Market takes place on Saturdays from 9 am until 12 pm at Jubilee Park which is located at 2552 McCallum Road at the corner of McCallum and South Fraser Way in Abbotsford.
In 2020, the summer market starts on May 16th and continues until October 31st. Their winter market starts in November. It’s a little smaller, but interesting just the same. 2020 winter market dates and details are to be confirmed.
In the summer months, weekly markets run from early May to late October. The first market of the season last year was on May 2nd (so a couple of weeks earlier than this year). Its last one in 2019 was on October 31st (and 2020’s end date is to be confirmed).
What to Expect at the Market
In the winter there tends to be only about two dozen or so vendors at each market, which makes it a mid-sized market for the winter season. In the summer, however, on a peak day there can be close to four dozen vendors, which makes it one of the Lower Mainland’s larger farmers markets.
Like many farmers markets, at the Abbotsford Farm and Country Market you can expect a wide variety of things for sale, including fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers, homemade preserves, baked goods, crafts and even a bit of live music entertainment. Of special note is the fact that the majority of vendors are growers and food producers from the immediate Abbotsford area.
