Whistler Farmers’ Market

Whistler Farmers’ Market

Dedicated to the promotion of regionally produced foods and crafts, the Whistler Farmer’s Market adheres to the 100-per-cent made, baked, grown or raised policy of the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets. Drawing on the unique growing conditions found to the north in Lillooet and Pemberton, and to the south in Squamish and the Fraser River Delta, the market showcases a wide variety of regional products including fruit, produce, meat, seafood, honey, spices, beverages and locally produced wine and liquor—as well as ready-to-eat artisan food and drinks.

A wide range of Sea-to-Sky region artistic creators also attend. As of 2021 the market hosts an average of 50 vendors per market day, and 100 different vendors throughout the season.

GEOLOGIC CONTEXT:

A crucible of locally grown and locally produced foods and crafts influenced by the unique geological history and soils of the Sea to Sky corridor.

Protection and guardianship are at the heart of the Geopark philosophy. We ask that you treat the land with the same reverence as its original inhabitants, and not remove anything from a site but what you’ve brought to help preserve it for future generations.

What Are Pillars?

The Fire & Ice Aspiring Geopark comprises four main geological pillars referenced in all interpretive material: (M)ountain Building, (G)laciation, (V)olcanism and (C)ollapse.

MOUNTAIN BUILDING

Mountain building can involve several processes that contribute to the formation of mountains, such as the collision of tectonic plates that result in folding, faulting, metamorphism and the creation of subduction zones associated with volcanic activity and igneous intrusion.

GLACIATION

Glaciation refers to landform phenomena associated with the formation, movement and recession of glaciers and ice sheets. In temperate latitudes such as British Columbia, montane glaciation at higher altitudes is the norm while continental glaciation occurred during Ice Ages like the recent Pleistocene.

VOLCANISM

Volcanism is the eruption of subterranean molten rock (magma) and gasses onto the surface of the planet and includes the production of volcanic landforms and the effects of eruptions and flowing lava on pre-existing surface formations.

COLLAPSE

Collapse is a term that refers broadly to both slow processes of destabilization and erosion by wind, water and ice, as well as rapid processes like rockfall and landslides.

Whether acting as primary or secondary forces, one or more of these processes figure in the creation of each geosite.
