More room for vendors and more workshops planned for Langley Community Farmers Market

For its second year in its new location, the Langley Community Farmer’s Market will have more room for vendors and for workshops.

It will open for the 2022 season on June 1 at Derek Doubleday Arboretum 21177 Fraser Hwy., where the market relocated from its previous home at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Langley Campus.

Open every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. the market will offer shoppers a mix of premium makers, bakers, and growers, until the end of August.

Visitors can stock up on fresh local produce, purchase artisan goods, support local breweries, or have dinner at one of the market’s food trucks.

Langley Community Farmers Market Chair Carolyn Essaunce said while the 2021 season required the market to keep the vendor mix to about 30 vendors last year, this year, they are looking forward to growing their network of producers.

“There are so many incredible local artisans and farmers in the Langley area,” Essaunce elaborated.

“We’re really looking forward to expanding our network of vendors and continuing in our mission to support the local Langley farmers”

There will also be initiatives to encourage people to use bicycles and public transit to get to the market.
