You know all about Kitsilano Farmers Market. But have you checked out the UBC Farm Market yet? Whether you need farm fresh produce during the week, don’t like rushing out of the hosue on Sundays for the Kits market, or are just curious in learning more about sustainable agriculture, this market makes it really pleasurable and easy.
UBC Farm Market take place at UBC campus Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays through October. Produce, honey and eggs are from UBC Farm — a 24-ha integrated production farm situated within a 90-year old coastal hemlock forest. UBC Farm grows over 200 varieties of fruits, vegetables, and herbs. The farm also features honey bee hives and egg laying, open pasture hens.
All produce is grown according to British Columbia Certified Organic Management Standards. However, the UBC Farm does not have organic certification.
