As a city known for its green spaces, it’s not surprising that Surrey’s home to nearly 500 farms. Agriculture plays a crucial role in Surrey’s economy. In fact over 50% of BC’s carrots, radishes, lettuce, and spinach come from Surrey farms!
The bonus of being in Surrey is that you’re able to experience the local produce first-hand. We don’t mean finding it on a shelf and tossing it in your super-sized shopping cart. No, siree. We mean picking blueberries until your hands and mouth are stained, choosing that Halloween pumpkin straight from the patch, and buying your weekly produce from the farmer who grew it.
