Vancouver Craft Beer Week celebrates all things related to local craft beer. The Locus is participating and is having week long food and beer specials to celebrate. Check out the details on their VCBW 2013 page.

This season’s farmer’s market on Main St. started today! From June 6th till October 3, 2012. The hours are 3pm till 7pm each week. but try to get there as early as you can. All the best stuff go first.

It is located in front of the Pacific Train station at Thornton Park, half a block from the Skytrain station.

I ran into a fellow Wisemonkey chow downer selling his artisinal baked goods.
