  • Swiss chard
  • Salad turnips
  • Beets
  • Parsley
  • Kale
  • Garlic

Fresh Roots’ produce is grown in schoolyards right here in Vancouver (Van Tech and David Thompson Secondary Schools, to be exact). That means the footprint of this produce is much smaller than conventional as it travels less than 10km to get to our markets. You can taste the difference in their food!

See you this weekend!

*As always, produce lists are subject to change. Thank you for your understanding.
