Made, Baked and Grown Locally at the Langley Community Farmers Market

METRO VANCOUVER, BC – (August 24, 2011) – Kwantlen Polytechnic University is pleased that the third annual Langley Community Farmers Market, held on the Langley campus every Wednesday afternoon, has experienced continued growth and community support for the third straight year. Over the 20 week season, it is anticipated that more than 20,000 Langley residents will benefit from the 30 plus vendors that “make it, bake it and grow it” locally.

The market boasts fresh, local produce, home baked goodies, creative artisan crafts, live music each week and a thriving ‘kid’s zone’ which gives parents free time to shop.

There is still time to experience the Langley Community Farmers Market; it is open Wednesdays from 2:00pm – 6:00pm now through October 5, 2011.
