If you’re looking for a New Year’s resolution that will have a positive impact on your community and is sure to give back to you all year long, resolve to cook local this year! When you support local food producers, you’re supporting quality food and caring for the local environment, as well as our communities and economy. Plus, it’s just more delicious!
To get started sourcing local ingredients for your meals, check out our What’s In Season
feature, which will help give you an idea of what foods are in season for any given month in BC, along with customized recipe suggestions. Our Find Local
function lets you find food producers across BC, either by location or the type of goods they produce. When you’re ready to stock up, try the BCAFM’s farmers’ market finder tool
to find the farmers’ markets that are closest to you. And our Recipe Finder
is searchable by season or course, so it’s easy to plan fresh meals season by season.
