Participation in BC Farmers’ Markets Online is voluntary for BC Association of Farmers’ Market members and does not necessarily replace a physical market. Each market is unique and will determine the best operating model for its vendors and community.
At this time, farmers’ markets are permitted to sell all products online that they sell at physical/in-person farmers’ markets, with the exception of alcohol. While alcohol products may be listed on the online farmers’ market platform, you will be redirected to the manufacturer website for order and/or purchase, or invited to visit the in-person market to shop alcohol products.
Products available through an online farmers’ market are at the discretion of the farmers’ market organizers and vendors.
Each market is unique and will determine the best operating model for its vendors and community. In other words, markets may vary in the online platform they use and how products are delivered or picked up. Visit their online market to learn more.
About the BC Farmers’ Market Online initiative
In the 2020/2021 winter season, 20+ BC farmers’ markets have an online market. BC Farmers’ Markets Online is an initiative that supports and promotes member farmers’ markets of the BC Association of Farmers’ Markets in selling vendor products through an online farmers’ market store. Each market is unique in its operations, and BC Farmers’ Markets Online reflects this diversity. For example, markets may vary in the online platform they use and how products are delivered or picked up.
Please note that participation in BC Farmers’ Markets Online is voluntary and does not necessarily replace a physical market. Additionally, for various reasons individual markets may determine not to develop an online market for the moment.
