There hasn’t been much summer weather this week, but that’s no reason to stop writing up summer spots to visit on transit!

How about the Surrey Urban Farmers Market, conveniently located at Surrey Central SkyTrain Station? (Thanks to Peter Leblanc for the suggestion!)

The market is open Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., and the market runs June 17 to Sept 30. This is an exciting “new” location for the market this year—the market actually used to be here about 8-10 years ago, before construction shut down this spot.

Anyway, check it out: the market has 20 local vendors selling produce, along with unique artisans and educational activities. There’s also a book exchange, plus the market tent will fill up your water bottle and take your batteries to be recycled!

Visit their website for more info, or follow them on Twitter or Facebook.

A few more summer spots…

  • Check out Movies Under The Stars, an outdoor movie series in Surrey! Here’s the schedule of events: the Aug 16 movie (Grease!) will be at Holland Park, just a short walk west of King George Station, and the Aug 23 film (Nim’s Island) is at Station Tower near Gateway Station. Never mind, looks like I’ve linked to the 2008 info! Check the comments: Robert has the right links.
  • The Collingwood Multicultural Summer Market is happening near the Joyce Collingwood Skytrain Station, on Vanness Ave between McGeer and McHardy Street! There’s fresh produce, a spice market, and more. Catch the last two market days on Sunday August 16 & Sunday August 23, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

  • Check Vancouver is Awesome’s event category for more events, and Miss 604 always has listings of community events worth checking out.
  • And email me if you have any more transit-accessible summer spots to add!
