I know the first place everyone will mention is the Strathcona Market, but to be honest, my husband and I can't stand it. We've been there several times, each time thinking maybe we'll have a better experience than the last. But even if we get there right at 8am, its already so crowded we can't stop to look at anything without getting shoved around and pushed constantly. Not a fun experience! Not to mention the terribly overpriced produce.
My question is, are there any other farmer's markets around the city, or surrounding area, which are any good? I've heard about the one in the Capilano Mall but have never been there. I've also heard of Kuhlmans as well. Maybe I've been spoiled having grown up in Florida with tons of outdoor markets brimming with local produce to choose from, but I'd like to see what Canada has to offer too!
