Our Farmers Market is coming! Mark your calendars for opening day. Saturday May 30th.
We are excited to introduce Shady Acre Farm.
Shady Acre’s Karly and Michaela met through the UBC Farm Practicum in Sustainable Agriculture and they bring two different perspectives to their acre of earth in Richmond. Community, sustainability, and environmental protection are the passions they share (and food, of course!) Their farm is less than 10 kilometres from our market. Support these new farmers and come find them at River District Farmers Market!
Read more about how to get involved in their harvest box program.
Wesgroup’s River District Sales Centre has had an overwhelmingly positive response during their preview weeks and is currently closed to get ready for their Grand Opening on Saturday, May 23rd. Call today for a private appointment. 604.879.8830.
