Easter at the Vancouver Farmer's Market

Some markets close on Easter Sunday but the hundreds of shoppers, some in their Easter finery, were happy to see the Vancouver Farmer's Market open for business.

The sun was out, the market was an easy walk from Downtown and Uptown churches, and the farmer's market was a colorful addition to the celebratory day. One couldn't help but notice the number of flower stands with bouquets, cut flowers and live plants. If there was an area Easter table without a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers on it, it certainly was no fault of the market vendors.

If you were shopping for Easter dinner, there was plenty to select from. The purple asparagus from the Yakima Valley stopped me. The farmer said it was sweeter than green asparagus. A Vancouver bakery, which is a go-to for fresh bread, even offered hot cross buns, a Good Friday staple in many countries, at the market.

And, if you weren't headed to a restaurant for Easter brunch, there was much to choose from at the market. Ethnic foods, and festival foods along with hot coffee and cookies meant you wouldn't go hungry.

Easter in Vancouver has that small town feel. And the Vancouver Farmer's Market is a vibrant gathering place.
