Whistler Farmers Market

Sundays 11 to 4 until October 9th Wednesdays in July and August from 2 to 7 pm

 

The Whistler Farmers Market is a registered non profit society dedicated to the promotion of locally produced foods and crafts. We adhere to the 100% made, baked or grown policy of the B.C. Association of Farmers Markets. From humble beginnings of one farm and a couple of crafters in the summer of 1994, the market now hosts an average of 80 vendors showcasing fresh fruit, produce, artisan crafts and food products.

Located at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, the Whistler Farmers Market welcomes residents and resort guests alike as they interact in the festive atmosphere accented by assorted entertainers.

Giving Back to the Community and our Members

The Board of Directors of the Whistler Farmers' Market identified "social responsibility" as an important direction for the organization in its 2011 Strategic Plan. The Whistler Farmers' Market has historically provided funding for the Whistler Food Bank. In 2012 we were able to increase their contribution back to the community significantly. We are able to provide awards to the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation and Fairmont Chateau Whistler Foundation for $2000 each. The Whistler Food Bank  contribution was increased by $2000. The Pemberton Arts Council received $1000 and the Whistler Arts Council received $500 in cash and $500 in market value.

Social responsibility  is embedded in the corporate culture of the Whistler Farmers' Market. We fully acknowledge that our success is due in a large part to the support of our partners and the community we are so proud to serve.
