Junior and Tiny Foodie Passport Program: Looking for something fun to do with the kids? Join our Tiny & Junior Foodie Passport Programs! The passport books feature fun activities to help your child explore Richmond BC’s first weekly farmers market and inspire them to get creative while learning all about where their food comes from – and It’s FREE. Just stop by the Kid’s Activity Centre booth, or the market table and be sure your little one collects a stamp for every activity page completed.
The passports provide children with engaging activities while at the farmer’s market and aim to educate our future generation about our local food. The activities encourage kids to engage with farmers in order to better understand where their food comes from, and inspire healthy food preparation at home. The passport allows kids to track the lessons they have learned, document their experiences with new fruits and vegetables and are available free of charge every Tuesday at the market.
Home gardeners can sell vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers at the Kwantlen St. Farmers Market held at the KPU campus in Richmond on Tuesdays from 12pm-4pm.
In lieu of fixed vendor booth fees, the market will collect a 10% of your total sales to be donated to the KSA Student Food Bank. As a service, the KSA Student Food Bank offers a seven-day emergency supply of food for current Kwantlen students. Qualifying students are eligible for two food hampers per month.
Throughout the season as fruits and vegetables come into season, gardeners with excess produce are invited to participate in our Gardeners Club. To apply to participate in the Gardeners Club please fill out our vendor application and select the Gardeners Club check box. Your application will be processed and we will be in touch to confirm your attendance on your selected dates.
