Kwantlen St. Farmers Market is officially open if you’re looking for fresh produce and homemade items.
The weekly open-air market runs every Tuesday from noon to 4 p.m. and can be found at Brighouse Park across from the Richmond City Hall.
Similar to last year, the market will focus on consumable products only until the BC Centre of Disease Control lifts pandemic restrictions on products such as soap, jewellery, crafts and live entertainment.
All markets in B.C. operate under these same guidelines and implement a "shop-don't-stop" policy to reduce gatherings in any one place.
The market, which is running for its seventh year, offers student-grown produce from Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Sustainable Agriculture Program as well as other products from community vendors.
Visitors can expect fresh herbs, vegetables, fresh farm eggs, seafood, jams, beef jerky and honey.
Three new vendors have also joined the market this year. The stalls will be selling flavour-infused soy sauces, ginger and turmeric-based health shots, artisan desserts, and baked goods.
The City of Richmond is offering one-hour free parking passes to market shoppers, which are available at the market entrance.
