On sunday morning we went to the Farmers Market near Nat Bailey Stadium!
It’s been a while since I’ve been to a Vancouver Farmers Market. It used to be so easy since I worked in Yaletown, and every Thursday meant I’d get to browse local goodies! Luckily (for us anyway), the Kitsilano Farmers Market is temporarily moved to Nat Bailey and it’s a lot closer for us.
We had our lunch there, getting to choose from one of the food trucks (there were about five surrounding the entrance to the market). Schnitzel! They were out of pork, so we got the chicken one instead.
There were lots of great booths selling fresh, organic, local produce! Lots of samples (cheese, veggies, even weiners!) too!
Then there were some more unique shops selling…magic spells? Very interesting, and their potions smelled lovely.
We had brought my boyfriend’s dog along, so there was a lot of stopping and sniffing going on. But our doggie only likes humans for the most part… other dogs are kinda meh to him.
It wasn’t a particularly sunny day, cloudy actually, but it was so warm that I actually wanted to sweat if not under shade. You know? That muggy kind of heat?
We had a nice pop! It was my first one, but it was very authentic in ingredients! We got raspberry rhubarb. And perfect to cool us down.
I’m glad there’s so many farmers markets around Vancouver. They also have different dates so that if you have work, you can choose to go to a weekend one instead! Eat local, eat fresh 🙂

Farmers markets are rad except I find it difficult to accept paying $7 for a cabbage. But you can definitely taste the difference in the produce.
I kept wishing I was rich when I was there. So many things to buy. So little $$$
