When we first went into lockdown last March, I cooked every day. We would get groceries every two weeks and ate mostly home-cooked meals. Then, I stopped completely. I was doing a little bit of cooking and a lot of take-outs for a while. Now, we do only take-outs. I budgeted accordingly so we can do this full-time but even I am getting bored of take-outs every day. Finally, I decided to get back to cooking again after we move. I have been researching farmer’s markets in Tsawwassen and Ladner and thought I would share the markets we plan on checking out. Our small town never fails to surprise me with how much it offers!
In addition to getting fresh, locally grown produces, visiting these markets is also a great way to support local businesses.
