The Mission City Farmer’s Market is returning to the downtown core.
In collaboration with the District of Mission, the market will be moving to the Welton Common parking lot located at 7337 Welton St., behind the post office, effective Aug. 10, 2019.
Organizers are excited to return to the downtown core, on the same day as Mission Fest.
The market will be at the Welton Common every Saturday from Aug. 10 to Oct. 5.
About the market:
The market itself has a long history in Mission. April 24 marked the 23rd anniversary of the outdoor food market.
It has been located in the Mission Leisure Centre parking lot for the past two years. Before that, it took place in the parking area at the Mission Library.
While organizers are happy in the present location, they have to move due to the upcoming construction of a new seniors centre and living complex.
