The BCAFM is here to serve the needs of our member farmers’ markets. We are committed to developing and strengthening the capacity of farmers' markets in all regions of British Columbia, so you, our members can continue to support local farmers and artisans and provide British Columbians with fresh healthy local food.
Together, we support small businesses and help them grow. With your support, we build leaders in the local food movement.
Home canning has always been the best way to preserve the natural goodness of our foods. Today home canning is even more attractive to Canadians because of their growing concern and interest in knowing the source of the food we eat. We see this thinking everyday in the healthy lifestyle concerns, organic produce, and the proliferation of farmers' markets. It's also evident in the popularity of the 100 mile diet and locally grown foods, the enhanced retail produce sections and the overwhelming popularity of home gardening.
