Buying Local

Farm Fresh Guide logoSurrey is home to more than 475 farms, and that agriculture accounts for one-third of our City’s land.

We encourage residents and visitors to support Surrey farmers by buying locally. The Surrey Farm Fresh Guide lists local Surrey farms that offer produce and horticultural products for sale to the public.

You can also visit a seasonal Farmers Market in Surrey to find fresh, local produce.

There are also local farms and markets featured on the Tourism Surrey webpage.

Growing Your Own Food

You can play an even bigger part in sustainability in Surrey by growing your own food. From herbs to vegetables to fruit and nut trees, our climate is great for growing food in our own backyards.

Surrey's mild climate and rich soils make it a great place to grow a wide range of products.

Not enough space to grow at home? Consider growing food on your balcony, or join a community garden. Visit your local nursery or the Surrey Seed Library to get started.
