Here is what to expect at the market this week:

  • Bananas (South America and Organic)
  • Honeydew Melons (BC)
  • Beets (BC and organic)
  • Carrots (BC and organic)
  • Patty pan squash (BC and organic)
  • Avocados (Mexico)
  • Peaches (BC)
  • Corn (BC)
  • Red Onions (Washington)
  • Kabocha squash (BC)
  • Macintosh Apples (BC)
  • Purple Beans (BC)
  • Savoy Cabbage (BC)

In addition, we’ll have a selection hyper-local goodies from Fresh Roots Urban Farm. 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!

So make sure to head down to this Saturday’s mobile market locations to stock up. We will be at Brant Villa from 10:30am to 12:30pm and Kensington Community Center from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

See you this weekend!

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