Whistler Farmers Market
Posted: Tuesday, June 25, 2013
The Whistler Farmer's Market has officially opened for the 2013 summer and fall season. The Farmer's Market has long been a popular place for tourists and locals alike looking to purchase fresh organically grown produce, tasty treats, artwork and hand crafted gifts from local Whistler vendors.
Over 80 vendors set up shop each week in Whistler's Upper Village Stroll creating a diverse array of products on display every week. One of the coolest things about the Whistler Farmer's Market is the quality of entertainers it attracts every week. Each week new musicians, children's performers and street entertainers are on display entertaining the hundreds of visitors passing by.
The Farmer's Market is a great place to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon strolling through the beautiful Upper Village located at the base of Blackcomb Mountain. There is something for everyone in the family including the Blackcomb Adventure Zone for the kids. This cool Adventure Zone is packed full of activities kids can enjoy including mini golf, go-karts, pony rides, trampoline zone and much more. The Blackcomb Adventure Zone run's adjacent to the market and is open at the same time.
This year's Whistler Farmer's Market will take place every Sunday beginning June 16 to October 13. The market will be open on Sunday's from 11AM to 4PM. Beginning July 3 the Farmer's Market will also be open every Wednesday until September 4. The Wednesday market will open from 3PM to 7PM.
