What's in Season in Richmond, BC

Agriculture is an important part of Richmond’s history and continues to be an important part of the city today – there are still over 200 farms within the city limits. Cranberries and blueberries are the most dominant crops that are grown here, but you can find a multitude of locally-grown fruits and vegetables here throughout the year, along with locally-raised meats. And if you’re looking for fresh seafood, head to Fisherman’s Wharf in Steveston to purchase seafood straight off of the fishing boats.  

Here are just a few examples of the fresh items you can look forward to throughout the year in Southwestern BC. For more information, visit

Spring (March – May): cabbage, cucumbers, kale, peppers, tomatoes

Summer (June – August): broccoli, strawberries, blueberries, potatoes, spinach

Fall (September – November): Brussel sprouts, cranberries, pumpkins, pears, Swiss chard  

Winter (December – February): apples, cabbage, carrots, onions, parsnips
