About the Ladner Village Market
The Ladner Village Market celebrates its 23rd year in 2019. It’s one of the largest summer markets in Canada west of Ontario, and features over 150 vendors per time.
The market isn’t a “farmers’ market,” and it isn’t specifically an “artisan market” either. There are vendors selling fresh produce, but not a large percent. There are numerous artists selling their creations though. So it’s like a farmers and artisan market that’s “light” on the farmers market side, although it’s also much more!
With a theme of “Make It, Bake It, Grow It,” the market features a wide variety of handmade artisan products, baked goods, farm fresh produce and homemade food items. It also has live music and attracts thousands of shoppers on days with sunny weather.
If you like farmers markets and artisan markets, then you’ll love the Ladner Village Market. It’s huge, it has energy, it’s in an attractive location and it’s highly recommended! It’s definitely one of our favourites!
Ladner is part of the municipality of Delta which is located south of Richmond, about halfway between South Vancouver and Tsawwassen. Tsawwassen, meanwhile, is also part of Delta and home to the BC Ferries‘ Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal.
Surrounded by the Fraser River to the north and farmland all around, Ladner itself is a cute place that originated as a fishing village many years ago. The town has quaint buildings and attractive streets.
Ladner hosts a number of community events each year including Ladner May Days. The town is also home to the Delta Museum. Other places of interest in the area are Deas Island Regional Park and the Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary.
