NOTE: The COVID-19 pandemic has affected these events. Please stay tuned for 2021 updates, when available.
The Skeena Valley Farmers' Market has been in operation for over 20 years, and has really grown in the last 10 years. Terrace is the furthest point north in BC where fruit trees can be grown, and the wares of the 70+ vendors aptly reflect the products of the fertile Skeena Valley. Everything at this market is home-grown, homemade, and home-baked. Coming here on a Saturday morning is the social thing to do—think of it as a community living room!
Open from May 1 to October 31
Saturdays 9:00 am–1:00 pm
Our Farmers Market Products:
- fresh veggies
- ethnic foods from local multicultural residents
- fresh fish
- canned foods
- and much more
One regular vendor is an organic farmer, another has a greenhouse, and in the fall there's lots of garden produce. Unique heritage-type bedding plants are available in spring. The artisans make very distinctive products and the Market promotes local musicians—buskers often entertain. There are community tables for fundraising and/or community information, and kids' activities are sometimes offered as well.
The Farmers Market is comfortable and welcoming to seniors, and a few of the vendors are seniors themselves. Interestingly, many market vendors have moved on from here to start their own successful businesses.
Christmas Craft Sale
The Christmas Craft Sale in November is always a big draw, featuring many regular market wares along with lots of Christmassy selections (baking, crafts, etc.) This sale takes place indoors at the Terrace Sportsplex.
