Nutritional. Creative. Unique.
The Bella Coola Farmers’ Market, the Community Table, is a seasonal weekly market that is run by a dedicated group who demonstrate that an active market leads to a healthy lifestyle and a happy community. “Our vendors are people who pride themselves on products that are well made or excellent freshly-grown produce,” explained vendor Dianne Tuck, “the market has happy returning customers.”
A lot of local residents have contributed time and worked steadily over the years to support this initiative. The Bella Coola Farmers’ Market is 100% self-funded by the vendors who participate in the market. The market aims to promote agriculture and support a clean, natural and healthy environment. The market vendors, organizers and volunteers are proud of their role in enabling people to buy locally or to participate themselves in growing, harvesting, cooking, baking and preserving local produce.
Visitors to the Bella Coola Farmers’ Market will discover a pleasant assortment of vendor goods including vegetables, fruits, jams, jellies, preserves, baking, garden plants, handmade jewellery, artwork, soaps, ointments, handmade fabric products, wood crafts and more.
