Does the institution host a farmers' market for the community?:

A brief description of the farmers’ market:

A community space with a wide range of delicious food options: local/organic fruits and vegetables, freshly baked bread, delicious jams, honey, salsa, eggs and more! Live music and educational activities make the market the perfect place to get to know your community, learn more about your role as a consumer in sustainable food systems and have fun!

The Burnaby campus hosts a farmers market that was developed as part of the SFU Local Food Project. The market is now managed by the Coquitlam Farmers Market to ensure the sustainability of the project but it was initiated by the university and is supported by the university and UniverCity community.

The market is a pocket farmers market bringing goods from the Lower Mainland of BC to our Burnaby campus. It runs every Wednesday 12pm-6:00pm May-October.
