Farm To Table Market comes to Yaletown!
If you live in Yaletown, you’re in luck! West Vancouver’s popular specialty grocery store Farm to Table Market opened its second location at 1312 Richards Street on July 21st. Their original location is at 1476 Marine Drive in West Vancouver, and those of you who have visited this gem already know how amazing this community market is.
Farm to Table Market is owned & operated by the husband & wife team Jason and Eva. I had the pleasure of chatting with Jason when I was at their West Vancouver shop a while back. Jason is so knowledgeable about the products he sells, and is quite proud of the quality goods that he offers to his customers. I also noticed how shoppers were greeted by name as they entered the store, and he took the time to chat with each of them. How many stores do you walk into where the owners know your name? That's a rare form of customer service these days in my opinion.

What I love about Farm To Table Market is the focus on selling fresh, organic produce and products from local farmers, artisans and vendors. This not only ensures quality and freshness, but supports our Canadian economy by sourcing locally. You'll find fresh produce, diary, meats and an array of groceries and specialty gourmet products that are sometimes hard to find. The great news is that with the larger Yaletown space, they'll continue to carry the same great products but with space for even more. The new location adds a salad bar, prepared food and a frozen seafood section.

In addition to selling local products, the company also imports specialty gourmet goods. They carry a large selection of some of the finest classic and unique imported cheeses. Cheese like Italian Burrata, Truffle Triple Creme Brie, and my favourite - Chateau De Bourgogne from France. This is a must try! It's so rich and creamy, it melts in your mouth!! I'm told that the cheeses are flown by air weekly from French and Italian cheese makers. They even carry Grey Owl Goat Cheese, which is apparently the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle's, favourite cheese. Other imports you can expect to find are quality vinegars, award winning olive oils from Europe and an assortment of other fine goods.

Olive Oils. I use and love the Olio Reserva.
I'm so excited about this new market. It is a great addition to the Yaletown area. Not only is the market a handy "one stop shop" for quality local, farm fresh, organic and artisan food, but shopping there is a great way to support local farmers! I only wish that one day they will open a location in my neighbourhood in White Rock!
