What's In Season this month in BC

What's in Season in BC in August?

Welcome back to What's in Season in BC!  August has a very big list of fruits, vegetables and herbs. I went to the Vancouver Farmers Market (Trout Lake)  to see what I could find. InSeasonAug_Apples_Onions

There  were some beautiful green and purple beans.

a mix of summer squash, beautiful swiss char, and some lovely carrots.
