Abbotsford Farm and Country Market

Garside's Fruit Farm will be attending the Abbotsford Farm and Country Market starting September 20th, or possibly even September 13th. If you have never stopped by the market there is quite a variety of local growers, food producers and artisans to check out. We normally would be at the market far earliers, but the late arrival of summer has caused the fruit to be abnormally late.

The market runs every Saturday in downtown Abbotsford in the United Church's parking lot.

Come see us there soon!
