PLEASE NOTE: EFFECTIVE AUGUST 9, MASKS ARE MANDATORY FOR ALL STAFF AND CUSTOMERS WHILE SHOPPING AT RICHMOND COUNTRY FARMS
Richmond Country Farms has been family-owned and operated for over 40 years! The market is a unique and lively place to shop. The vibrant agricultural heritage of Richmond, B.C., has helped make our Farm Market a popular attraction for local shoppers and visitors alike! During the growing season, we provide our customers with our own grown corn, strawberries, brussel sprouts, potatoes, broccoli, kale, watermelon, blueberries, pumpkins, and multiple varieties of squash- we can assure our shoppers of the very best local produce at the very best prices. We are proud to be one of the very first farm-to-table markets in Richmond, having opened for our first season in 1978. We practically invented the 10-mile diet!
The Lower Mainland climate offers excellent growing conditions for an incredible variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Our farm and local, small-scale, family farms cultivate many unusual, heirloom and unique varieties that cannot be found in regular grocery stores!
A friendly reminder to all that Richmond Country Farms is not a petting zoo, and to please not touch or feed any of our animals that live on the farm- this is to ensure the safety and well-being of our animals, and our customers.
We thank you for your understanding!
