The Fort Langley Farmers Market is a medium-sized market that takes place on Saturdays outside a church in the beautiful little town of Fort Langley.
In addition to being a farmers market with fresh fruits and vegetables, it also offers a selection of arts and crafts, not to mention wines and the occasional other adult beverage.
THE MARKET AND COVID-19
Despite the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, the market is running this summer. Before heading out to market though, check the venue’s official website first to make sure the status of the market hasn’t changed.
Given the current world situation regarding COVID-19, the market has implemented a number of precautionary measures and changes. At the beginning of May, for example, only food, craft beer, wine and other beverage vendors were participating. As of early July however, Artisan vendors have joined as well.
For more details about the status of the event see the Fort Langley Farmers Market website.
Fort Langley Village Farmers’ Market
Operating since 2011, the Fort Langley market is not a huge market, but it’s a good one which makes Saturdays opportune times to visit Fort Langley, the area and the town’s historic Hudson’s Bay Company fort.
When and Where
In 2020 the Fort Langley Village Farmers Market runs from May 2nd until October 31st.
The market takes place on Saturdays between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm in the parking lot at 9025 Glover Road outside St. Andrews Historic Church. Starting up for the season a week or so before Mother’s Day in May, it’s a weekly market that operates all summer and finishes at the end of October.
Glover Road is the village’s main street which is lined with large old trees and heritage buildings. The market is just a few blocks from the town’s historic cemetery, restaurants, curiosity shops, antique stores, coffee shops and the Fraser River. It’s also less than a 15-minute walk to the fort.
About the Market
Good days to visit the market include any Saturday that you’re in Fort Langley anyway, as well as sunny days in the summer and on special occasion weekends like around Mother’s Day, Victoria Day, Canada Day, BC Day, Labour Day and Thanksgiving.
On long weekends, like those listed above, the market is especially vibrant and the town’s fort sometimes offers special activities. Also, occasionally, like on the Victoria Day weekend, the market is open on an additional day, so not just on the Saturday.
How many vendors are at the Fort Langley Village Farmers Market? That depends a bit on the day, but typically it’s a small to medium-sized market with about two and a half to three dozen or so stalls selling everything from local produce to jams, handcrafted art, baked goods and Fraser Valley wines.
