Farmers' Markets For AllThis year's theme is "Farmers' Markets for All." With the help of industry experts and community members, we will examine how we can further nurture and strengthen an inclusive, diverse, and thriving farmers' market sector in British Columbia. With networking opportunities, inspiring and practical workshops, and Farmers' Market Awards, this event is ideal for farmers' market organizers, growers, small scale food processors, artisans, and agriculture and community leaders to attend.
