  1. I wish we had a Jean Talon Market -like market here. The closest would be Granville Island which I don't consider to be a true farmers' market. Then there are the smaller community farmers' markets held on parking lots eg the Trout Lake farmer's market in East Vancouver.

    1. I don't know of farmer's markets in Surrey, but Two EEs grows a lot of their own produce and lots of it's organic and spray free. I really like how their signs indicate where the produce originates from. Prices are super reasonable. Located at Fraser Hwy and 164th Street.
