Top 5 ways to Enjoy Farmers’ Markets Over the Winter Season!

See my “Top 5 ways to enjoy your favourite farmers’ market” blog post to learn how you can enjoy there products all year round.

Here’s three of them here:

#5 Stock Up

Many of our vendors experienced very strong sales on their last market days since this is exactly what customers were doing.

#4 Contact a vendor and ask if they deliver

Believe it or not, you can even ask for jam to be delivered to your door! Go to artisanmarkets.ca/vendor-profiles to find contact information, or check if your existing SPUD.ca delivery offers the farmers’ market products you love including Coconama, Golden Ears Cheesecrafters, Cowichan Pasta Company, Granola King, Tiny Tummies, ,

#3 Find your favourite vendors’ names

Looking up a vendor profile works by the vendor’s name. If you don’t have a name, look for where you remember the vendor’s tent being located on any particular week:

Burnaby  Lonsdale  Ambleside

#2 Contact a vendor and ask where they will be selling

Many of our vendors have busy Christmas schedules, so ask when and where they’re selling. In some cases, a vendor will have either their own store front or be selling in a store, so be sure to check into this possibility.
