Cloverdale veggies on the menu at Surrey Farmers' Market

Heirloom veggies grown in Cloverdale are just some of the fabulous local fare featured at Surrey’s Urban Farmers Market, now open for the season.

The market runs Wednesdays to October 3 from 1 to 6 p.m. in the courtyard of the North Surrey Recreation Centre.

The market features produce from more than 20 local farmers, including vegetables and free-run eggs from Rondriso Farms.

http://www.rondriso.com/images/yootheme/yoocarousel/carosel_1.jpg“When our customers tell us how good our produce is, I explain that it’s all about getting it from the farm to the market as quickly as possible,” says Ron Tamis, who owns and operates the family-run farm at 8390 172 Street.

“That’s where you taste the difference.”

For now, the farm is open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Surrey Urban Market also hosts local musicians, has a children’s crafts area, and visitors can peruse a used book exchange, drop off batteries and old cellphones for recycling and more.

The market also features food vendors, artisans and crafters.
