Market Days in Langley

Category: Agritourism

We can’t contain our excitement! As the end of April is on Thursday, we celebrate the start of May for a couple of reasons. Warmer weather is always a plus in May but our amazing Farmer’s Markets start too! We aren’t complaining either, with the warmer winter we have had, our berry crops are growing and will be ready earlier than the regular season. What better way to spend a day strolling around one of our local farmer’s markets and celebrating all of the local produce and products we have to offer. Here’s a list of the Farmer’s Markets happening in Langley this May!

Resolve to Make like a Tourist – In your own Town!

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

Starting tomorrow you’ll have to start remembering to date things 2015 instead of 2014. With a new year, comes new resolutions, new goals, and new schedules. If you’re anything like me, you probably want to set some new year’s resolutions for yourself, but aren’t quite sure where to start. In my experience, setting big grandiose resolutions are great, but the smaller, more realistic ones tend to be much easier to keep and are often much more satisfying in the end.

‘Tis the Season to Shop Local

Categories: Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Shopping & Services

Have you picked out your tree, loaded up on eggnog, and bought all your presents for friends and family? Do you have your house decorated and are the stockings hung by the chimney with care?

Well done! We wish we could be more like you. But alas, we’re usually the ones running around at the last minute, frantically trying to find the most perfect gifts, while also tearing our hair out. We’re probably not the only ones, either. Right? Christmas shopping can be incredibly stressful.

Milner Village Winter Market

Categories: Agritourism, Shopping & Services

Milner Market is a farmers market first. But it’s also a craft fair, a jewellery shop, an organic health and beauty show, a wine and cheese tasting barn, a fashion mecca and a one stop Christmas décor store,” says Evelyne Mikusch, Executive Director at Milner Village Winter Market.  “The community comes together around a devotion to local food. Home grown and family produced preserves, seeds, spices, herbs, teas, coffees, berries, nuts, cereals, grains and honey aren’t available anywhere else.” Mikusch says.

The Honour System Amplified – BC Buzz Honey Hut

Categories: Agritourism, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

I don’t know why I find the honour stand system so enthralling. Perhaps it’s merely a reflection of the way our world currently is that I find myself stunned, and asking in wonder: “you mean there isn’t anyone there?” If you haven’t noticed these stands before now I guarantee that you will start seeing them everywhere. From eggs to flowers, Langley is full of these self-service stands. These stands are a fairly common phenomenon here in Langley, but the BC Buzz Honey Corporation has brought the next level of honour-system sales to Langley. After being so well-received at local farmer’s markets, BC Buzz set up the most adorable self-serve stand you ever did see. It’s cartoony, it’s unexpected, and it’s quite simply genius!

My annual trek to the Fort Langley Cranberry Festival

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

In my opinion, the first true sign of autumn is not fallen leaves, nor crisp cool days, but the annual Fort Langley Cranberry Festival! As always, the popular event falls on the Saturday of the Thanksgiving long-weekend. This year marks the 19th annual Fort Langley Cranberry Festival taking place on October 11th 2014. This one day festival in Fort Langley celebrates the harvest of these tart little berries. Cranberries are a major commercial crop in Fort Langley, and BC as a whole produces more than 5,800 acres of these little red gems. A good portion of them are destined for Ocean Spray to be turned into various cranberry products, while some stay right here in our community and are turned into delicious wine, chocolate covered treats, syrups, and more!

There’s a New Bird in Town

Categories: Agritourism, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

To visitors and residents, Langley is a magnificent showcase of the past, present and future.  When you look to Langley, one quickly learns of the historical and cultural values that have earned the communities respectful place in literature and maps, but this is also the home to folklore and many little known or quirky facts.

Welcoming Autumn

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

It’s official, the sun is setting on summer. The leaves are becoming a colourful mix of reds, yellows and oranges. You can feel it in the air, and you can even smell it. There’s a crispness in the morning that hasn’t been felt in months. The grass is dewy, or even frosty. There’s much more night time and darkness than there was even a month ago. It’s here – the season of all things pumpkin-spiced. So take out the umbrella, unearth the rain boots, and put on your coat. Fall is here! While we all lament the passing of another gloriously hot and beautiful summer in the Valley, there is still so much to look forward to this fall. We hope you’ll take the time to appreciate the beauty of autumn in Langley and to get excited for the abundance of activities that fall brings. So rather than sit around waiting for next summer, let’s welcome autumn in Langley with open arms!

Lack of a Green Thumb

Categories: Agritourism, Wine & Food

The only plant I seem to be able to keep alive is the dancing flower wearing sunglasses that sits on my counter at home … and yes it may be plastic, but that’s a minor detail. As I clearly did not inherit the green thumb my mother has, I resort to the next best thing which is buying local flowers, fruit, and produce! Here in Langley we are extremely fortunate to be surrounded by such a rich agriculture industry. From fruit and berries, to veggies and even vineyards there are so many different crops for us to enjoy!
