Last Sunday Theresa was heading for Connaught Park to the Kitsilano Farmers Market to buy some plastic free produce. I grabbed the camera and decided to tag along.
Armed with our to go cups and Theresa’s homemade granola bars we headed out to a beautiful Vancouver day despite the smoke hanging over the City from the wildfires (fourth worst year to date – last year was the worst). Another reason why we need to be as kind to the environment as possible.
The market is located on the west side of Connaught Park and operates Sundays 10.00-14.00 from May 6 to October 21.
Lots of people, fresh fruit and veg, Bluegrass musicians, cool t-shirts for sale, beer, vodka, ice cream, bread and so much more.
Theresa bought potato to make some chickpea curry, peaches for peach cobbler and tomatoes, blueberries, cucumber and garlic. If you are trying to reduce waste like us, I recommend bringing your own bags as the vendors only offer plastic bags.
All in all an excellent visit. Maybe next time I’m back I’ll visit the R&B Brewing stall to pick up a few brews.
Don’t forget to drop in next time you are in Kitsilano and support the local farmers.
