In its inaugural year, the Downtown Chilliwack Market is bringing local people together with great local food. Started through community demand, this outdoor market features farmers, bakers, makers, and foragers, as well as artisans and performers. With capacity for 23 vendors, room for parking, and accessibility being planned into the space, there is lots of potential to incorporate food trucks and more live entertainment in future seasons.
As a food-focused endeavour, the market’s board of directors is prioritizing food security initiatives to ensure locals have affordable access to fresh produce and products grown, baked, made, or gathered close to home.
This market participates in the BC Farmers' Market Nutrition Coupon Program.
