Abbotsford Farmers' Market
“Rockweld Farms Chicken” returns. Scheduled every two weeks now until late September.
“Kics Lemonade” returns to Abbotsford – very popular when they participated in previous years. This is one of only two appearances at Abbotsford this summer. Next one is late August.
We heard rumours that there might be some peaches in the market this week. The interior peach orchards are just starting to serve up these tree-ripened beauties.

City Planning Dept. in Market This Week
The Market knows that our customers and vendors are invested in Abbotsford and concerned about its future. So we have agreed to host a City of Abbotsford Planning Department info booth this week. This message from City Planning staff explains the focus of the booth, “Now that we have the vision in our updated Official Community Plan, it’s time to put the plans in place for the future that you envisioned!
We’re laying down the foundations to build the city of the future. We know where our green spaces are going, but how do we build them? Where do our main roads go and how wide are they? How about sidewalks and sewer lines? How big can new houses be? All the important details that make our city of the future a walkable, transit friendly, forward thinking, dynamic place to be as envisioned in our Official Community Plan.
