Launched in May, 2008 by the Richmond Agricultural and Industrial Society (RAIS), the Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market is a venue where farmers, artists and craftspeople make their products available in an open, fresh-air environment. The Steveston Farmers & Artisans Market (SFAM) is a not-for-profit operation run by a volunteer committee under the auspices of RAIS. All monies raised by SFAM go to support activities and projects of the Steveston Community Centre such as the Steveston Water Park and the current renewal of the Steveston Adventure Playground.
With entertainment playing and vendors striking up light conversation with customers throughout the day, the Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market creates a friendly, social environment for you to spend your afternoon.
Whether you’re buying fresh locally grown produce, grabbing a bite to eat, enjoying the craftsmanship of some of the artisans, or simply strolling through the market enjoying the day, the market has something to offer for everyone.
Our market strives to offer a wide selection of some of the best farmed and hand-crafted products in British Columbia. Our vendors are proud to “Make It, Bake It, Grow It or Catch It” for loyal customers who appreciate buying from, and supporting, local farmers and artisans.
Located in the East hope parking lot across from the Steveston Community Centre at 4320 Moncton Street. Opening day is the first Sunday in May; open first and third Sunday monthly through September.
