Vancouver Farmers Markets Berry Festival

July 12th, 2013 @ 9:58am (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

Berries have to be near the top of any “eat local” enthusiast’s list in Metro Vancouver with our abundance and proximity to blueberry, strawberry, blackberry, and raspberry growers. To celebrate this bounty, Vancouver Farmers Markets are hosting the 2013 Berry Festival at the Main Street Market on Wednesday.
