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

I met Milan (aka Tomato Man) he's a tomato farmer (Stoney Paradise Certified Organic); and from what I saw, he's got the biggest tomatoes at the market:

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