Nothing heralds the start of summer in White Rock quite like opening day of the White Rock Farmers Market. And this year the market is back to its pre-Covid layout and is bigger and better than ever with more vendors and the return of live entertainment. Winner of the best large market in BC in 2015, the White Rock Farmers Market is one of the most popular markets in the province! Lively and fun, kid-friendly and dog-friendly, it’s a wonderful way to spend the morning in White Rock. People come to farmers’ markets for many reasons and whether your reason is to learn about healthy food, connect with growers of your produce, soak up the community vibe or just to eat, the White Rock Farmers Market is fun for everyone. Head to the market on Sunday, April 24 for opening day, and every Sunday through to October 16.

Here are our suggestions for a day of shopping (and eating) your way around one of BC’s best farmer’s markets! Locals tip – go early for the best selection, or try going late for a bargain!

  • Stroll through the 90+ vendors and fill your bags with seasonal produce, delicious baked goods and unique speciality foods. And be sure to leave room for a refreshing bottle of kombucha or locally distilled spirits.
  • Market shopping is hungry business and fortunately, you’re in the right place! Visit Ça Croustille for flaky, melt-in-your-mouth croissants, pick up a savoury empanada from the Empanada Gals or hit the Fijian Fusion or Primos Mexican food trucks to satisfy those hunger cravings.
  • While you’re eating, take a seat on one of the benches and enjoy some of White Rocks’ finest live performers.
  • Now that you’ve visited all of the food vendors, it’s time to check out the artisan stalls. Shop for wearable art, exquisite jewellery, and unique home decor and art. And be sure to pick up fresh flowers!
  • Before you head home, satisfy that sweet tooth with a stop at the Rolled West Coast stall for the ultimate instagrammable rolled ice cream, or savour a gourmet chocolate bonbon in an exotic flavour like matcha raspberry or sesame crunch from Solasta Chocolate.
  • End your day with a stroll down to the beach and have a picnic with your Farmer’s market finds!

More tips:

  • Don’t forget to bring your own bags.
  • Know your seasons. If you know what’s in season in advance, it makes shopping for particular meals easier. Visit the White Rock Farmers Market website for a complete list of what’s in season throughout the summer.
  • Be spontaneous. Try that unusual vegetable you’ve never heard of. You never know, you might discover your new favourite food.
