Vancouver Backyard Gardener Sells his Produce at the Curb
Jordan sells his home-grown produce from a stand right in front of his home in Vancouver, BC. Every Sunday he harvests herbs, vegetables, fruit and also some eggs, and places them for sale at the end of his driveway. He calls his market stall “Southlands Farm”.
Now what if other backyard gardeners in his neighbourhood brought their extra harvested produce to him to sell. What if there was a Jordan with a table at the foot of a driveway in every neighbourhood in town. These would be true City Farmer’s Markets, Zero-Mile Market Stands.
Think of the colourful designs of each of these small booths, and their wild and wonderful names. People would tell only their best friend about how they found great peppers at ‘Rainbow Glade Farm’ up at the corner of Sasamat and 16th Avenue or a rare pear from another site.
