Coming to you directly from the heart of farm country, the Chilliwack Farmers’ Market at Minter Country Garden on Young Road is ready to launch its third season on Saturday, June 25.

Returning farm vendors have “specially planned” their garden harvests to ensure a variety of fresh produce every Saturday morning all summer long, said market general manager Geoffrey Dalmon.

“They are encouraged by the previous year’s success and are building on it, starting this weekend,” he said.

New this year are some local producers of artisan cheese and organic turkey, joining those who sell local pork, poultry, beef, as well as canned preserves, nuts and baked goods.

The market manager has seen “steady, year-over-year growth” in both the number of farm vendors setting up tables, and the families who come to shop for fresh food from the source.

“If you make it, bake it or grow it you can sell it at the Chilliwack Farmers Market,” he said.

Dalman is also working to secure special shelf space for local farmers at local retailers.

The market is held every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m until September at 10015 Young Road North, Chilliwack in the front parking lot of the Minter Country Garden store.
