Vacay.ca Loves Vancouver For Urban Treats
After you say “I do,” make the 91-km trek south to Vancouver with your honey for some good eats. Vacay.ca Outdoors Columnist Tricia Edgar discovered that wonderful restaurants and hotels are not the only things about Vancouver that foodies will enjoy. In her story entitled “Yummy taste of Vancouver’s urban farms,” Edgar discovered this city has some really interesting farm tours.
Edgar writes: “One of the best things about a visit to a farm is the food, of course. There’s nothing sweeter than a farm-fresh carrot or a handful of delicious, ripe raspberries. Vancouver’s urban farming scene is exploding, with urban farms popping up on lawns around the city. At UBC Farm, you’ll find a seasonal farmers’ market and many wonderful projects to explore. There’s a children’s garden and an aboriginal food garden, and the farm is home to many a workshop on growing and processing your own food. Vancouver’s Local Garden greens opened in 2012, and it is building a core of loyal patrons by offering delicious greens grown vertically in Vancouver’s inner city. You can try out these greens at many locations, including some of Vancouver’s favourite restaurants.”
