Buying Local

Surrey 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.

Farmers markets

There are a growing number of Farmers Markets taking place in Surrey and across Metro Vancouver.

The Surrey Urban Farmers Market takes place on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in the parking lot of Royal Kwantlen Park at the corner of 104 Street and Old Yale Road. An online option is also being offered for select items.

The Clayton Community Farmer's Market, taking place on select Sundays from May to October in the parking lot of Clayton Heights Secondary School, showcases local farmers, crafters and artisans. It also features a Family Fun Zone, live music and food trucks.

Cloverdale Market Days feature unique items from local BC Artisans and treasures from the downtown merchants with over 100 vendors. Located in Historic Downtown Cloverdale, Cloverdale Market Days events run five times each year every summer and are attended by thousands of locals and tourists.

See the BC Association of Farmers Markets to learn more about Farmers Markets.

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 to get started.
