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.
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.
Fort Langley Makers Markets
In addition to the weekly Fort Langley Village Farmers’ Market, there is also a smaller once-a-month market that takes place just down the road.
Not to be confused with the farmers’ market, the Fort Langley Makers Markets take place in the park outside the Fort between 10:00 am and 3:30 pm. (Note: in previous years the Makers Market was bi-weekly and happened at the Fort Langley Lions Hall at 23022 88th Avenue every second Saturday from April until September. In 2019, however, it happens just once a month starting in May).
2019 dates for the Makers Markets are May 20, June 1, July 1, August 5, September 7 (but to be confirmed) and October 12. It’s a small market with about 30 vendors. Admission is free.
When and Where
In 2019 the Fort Langley Village Farmers Market runs from May 4 until October 26.
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.
