On Sunday, October 16, the Vancouver Farmers Markets will present their Third Annual dinner fundraising event: RIPE: A Harvest Celebration, at the Creekside Community Centre in Olympic Village.

RIPE is a casual, family-style event that includes a feast of delicious and seasonal food prepared by both local chefs and market vendors. Regional beer, wine, and cocktails will be available; a silent auction and live entertainment will round out the festivities.

This important event helps raise money to improve and grow the operations of Vancouver Farmers Markets in an effort to bring healthy, local food to city markets. 10% of the proceeds will go directly to build the Farmers Nest Egg Fund, an initiative created by VFM to help farmers in need and to expand the network of local farmers.


The menu will feature small plates prepared by chefs from Meat & Bread, Vij’s Rangoli, Campagnolo, Swallow Tail Supper Club and Save-On Meats, using seasonal food provided by Farmers Markets vendors. The Creekside Community Centre in Olympic Village will serve as a backdrop offering beautiful views of the local mountains.
