Kids favourites at the Whistler Farmers Market

Taking the whole family to the Whistler Farmers Market is a Sunday tradition for not only the locals but those visiting for the weekend too. It's clear that all kids have their favourite vendor where they get to purchase their special treat. Here's the ultimate list (and one to break out when you're trying to convince your toddler to get out the door).

Sargent Poppers

Freshly Popped Kettle Corn

A long time vendor, Sargent Poppers brings freshly popped kettle corn, each and every week! You can find them at the market on both Wednesdays & Sundays, every week. Grab a snack bag, or grab a family bag (if you wish to share that family bag, that's up to you!). Grab a freshly squeezed lemonade while you're there.

Snowcones & Cordials

I don't know about you, but this is the one way I can easily convince my three year old to get out the door.  It's also the number one bribery I use to keep him in his stroller while I shop around the market (he's also the happy guy sitting in the photo). As a parent, I take joy knowing he's eating a treat that isn't filled with artificial flavours or colouring.

The duo behind frostibites make these syrups from real fruit. Be sure to grab a cordial and use one of their Instagram cocktail recipes for a special treat that is well deserved for those braving the market with their toddler!

Maples Sugar Shack

Maple Syrup

What Canadian farmers market would be complete without real maple syrup? The best part about the Maples Sugar Shack is the snow candy they serve up each and every week. Its delicious, it's simple, and it's oh-so-Canadian! Whether your a tourist tasting the Canadian cuisine, or doing your weekly shop, this is a simple treat the kids will love!

Lucia Gelato

Gelato

No hot day is complete without a sweet cold treat to finish (or start) the day. A locals favourite, Lucia Gelato is the real thing, authentic, Italian Gelato. Flavours can change from week to week. Be sure to try a couple of flavours and don't be afraid to ask for two different flavours in your bowl when you order.
