LCFMS is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is:
1. To contribute to the economic viability of local farms, cottage industries and small businesses that make, bake or grow their products.
2. To operate a market that creates opportunities for these producers and customers to interact with each other.
3. To offer opportunities for public education in related areas such as nutrition, sustainable agriculture, the local economy, the environment.
Kwantlen Polytechnic University brings with it a tradition of providing access pathways for students with different talents and abilities, and opportunities for all who are willing to work hard to realize their goals.
