Scenes from the Kitsilano Farmers Market #vanfarmers
Despite the rainy weather last Sunday, opening day saw the Kitsilano Farmers Market packed with people looking for fresh local food. The Foodtree team was in attendance talking with vendors, taking photos, and doing a bit of shopping of our own.
There was a great mix of tempting products available and I went home with baked goods, tulips, and my beloved asparagus. I took many photos that morning because everyone seemed to have something beautiful or delicious.
