In light of Farmers Appreciation Week, we will be hosting Farmers Appreciation Day on Wednesday, September 10th at the market! We will have music featuring Jordan Pritchettand Brown Paper Bag, guest speakers,  a corn roast, and pie & ice cream! We will also have a photo booth where you can take some farmer-inspired photos! So be sure to stop by anytime between noon and 5pm to show our farmers some love!

2014 Market Season

There have been two exciting changes this year for the Surrey Urban Farmers Market. First of all, we’ve moved to the Surrey City Hall Plaza! It’s a great location and we’re very excited to host our market there.

The second change is market hours: the Surrey Urban Farmers Market will now be open from 12pm-5pm every Wednesday from June 11th to October 8th. Catch some tunes on your lunch break or swing by for an early dinner!

This year at the market you can also look forward to monthly features including recipe demonstrations, art displays, local vendor showcases and more!

Vendors still interested in applying to be at the market can find the application under the “Vendors” tab of our website.

In Your Community

Plums

Did you know that the Surrey Urban Farmers Market works with community groups to make fresh vegetables, fruit, nuts, meat and dairy available for folks who may not otherwise be able to afford it?

Thanks to Healthy Families BC and the BC Association of Farmers Markets, we are able to work with Umoja Operation Compassion Society and Oak Avenue Neighbourhood Hub to provide 60 families and 20 seniors with Farmers Market Nutrition Coupons.  We are so thrilled to be able to be part of this program this year again and hope that it will grow even bigger next year!

 

Market Beets StageYvon2

At the Surrey Urban Farmers Market we love to support local musicians as well as local
food! Every week we welcome the talents of different musicians for an afternoon that may include original work, a walk down memory lane, or tunes that cause you to get up and dance!

If you’re a regular you might recognize the musical talents of Joe Given, Yvon Langlois, Braden Daniel or Chris the Accordion Guy. Don’t be shy to request your favourite song!
