Ladner Village Market

Taking place on the second and fourth Sundays of the month between mid-June and mid-September on the three block stretch of 48th Avenue between Delta Street and Elliott Street, the Ladner Village Market is one of Western Canada’s largest farmers markets, and one of our favourites.

From 10 am to 4 pm each time as many as 150 vendors sell everything from fresh produce to baked goods to all kinds of handcrafted art. If you’re looking for an amazingly massive farmers market, this is where you’ll find it. Many consider it the best.

Market dates in 2018 are June 10th and 24th, July 8th and 22nd, August 12th and 26th and September 9th.

While in the area …, if the weather is good, consider visiting the Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta on Westham Island just west of Ladner.

Richmond Night Market

In addition to the above farmers markets, the Richmond Night Market also takes place on Sunday evenings in the summer (as well as on Fridays and Saturdays).

Richmond’s Asian-themed market isn’t a farmers market with local farmers and piles of farm fresh produce, but it is still very interesting and well worth checking out. Thousands of people every weekend do!
