Vancouver’s Farmers Markets see rules slightly relaxed for summer
During the province update on Thursday, Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix brought some good news to all you health nuts out there. Effective immediately, a few restrictions on Vancouver’s Farmers Markets have been lifted, which means more fun for you!
It’s a pretty simple update, and it’s in line with BC entering ‘Phase 2’ of the reopening. Basically, non-food vendors will be allowed back at the markets, and social distancing friendly seating is available as well. Straightforward, but we like to celebrate the small victories here.
And we also like to celebrate local business! So the next time you feel like going to buy groceries, see if you wouldn’t be better off swinging by a farmers market instead. Usually, you’ll be getting better stuff at a better price.
Plus, with the lift on non-food items, maybe you’ll find a great artisanal candle or something while you’re browsing! If you’d like to read the press release in full, click here.
