When consumers shop locally, it is proven to strengthen communities. A strong business community provides opportunities for innovation and economic growth; creating jobs, and supporting local causes. From restaurants to financial type businesses and clothing to grocery stores. When we shop local, we simply build a stronger and a more resilient community.
The Fraser Valley is a large region that encompasses Langley, Aldergrove, Fort Langley, Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Agassiz, Hope, Harrison Hot Springs and more. Throughout recent years, our region of BC has been one of the fastest growing areas in the whole country. With that said, it also continues to produce amazing opportunities for us to stay with the shop local mentality.
Life in the Fraser Valley is seriously like no other. We have the great outdoors, city life, and the largest amount of farm fresh products anywhere in the province of British Columbia.

Fraser Valley Farmers Markets
There are several farmers markets throughout the Fraser Valley. Most of them operate during the late spring through early fall months. We do have a few markets that last through the majority of the year and have an indoor venue during those colder months. There is far more than just fruit and vegetables that can be found at local farmers markets. You can find a wide variety of fine baked goods, local sweets, and even some of the wines from local wineries.
