Visit Honeybee Centre Saturdays this late summer and early fall to discover farmers market shopping through one of the most bountiful growing seasons. Apples, beans, beets, blueberries, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, corn – so much is at prime ripe deliciousness in August and September – Surrey growers have something to offer all the way through the alphabet to potatoes, pumpkins, tomatoes, turnips and winter Squash.
Honeybee Centre now hosts Surrey’s InSeason Farmers Market, and the comprehensive business is at the forefront connecting British Columbians to local honey, both as producers and consumers. This summer 2013 commitment to farm fresh summer shopping makes sense.
The joys of specialty honey and the health benefits of natural bee products available in the country store and family-friendly visitor centre will be joined by a selection of equally tasty and beneficial locally grown and produced shopping necessities outside in the tent plaza parking lot.
Honeybee Centre and InSeason Farmers Markets are building a “make it, bake it, grow it” environment, with a selection sure to change weekly. Ideally located at the corner of 176th Street and Fraser Highway, this early Saturday market offers easy drop in on the way to more mundane errands or in between weekend sports activities.
As another member of the BC Association of Farmers Markets, this is part of a vital initiative in Surrey to give local growers and food producers center stage.
In addition to honey and produce, this new mini-market features all natural healing and body care from locally grown lavender, handmade gourmet chocolate, fall flower planters, traditional and gluten-free baking, hand crafted jewellery, clothing, fair trade handmade soap from India and Afghanistan, Thai Curry sauces, European style preserves, and many other exceptional Surrey market vendors.
Top off the trip with a meal. Eat at the market, naturally! Find hot food for reasonable prices from trendy food trucks, fresh off the grill.
