The White Rock Farmers’ Market officially launched its 16th season last weekend, with a well-attended opening day Sunday.
With more than 120 vendors registered for the 2015 summer season – which runs every Sunday through Oct. 11 – hundreds of attendees browsed local produce, baked goods, meat, cheese, food trucks and more.
Earlier this year, the White Rock Farmers’ Market was recognized by the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets as a finalist for best market in the province.
The winner of the large (61-plus vendors) category, named at the association’s annual conference in February, was the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market.
This year, the White Rock market will be operating with new hours – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. – at Miramar Plaza, 15154 Russell Ave. The indoor winter market is set to run Oct. 18 to Dec. 13 at The Elks Hall, 1469 George St.
