Farmer Podcast Club: The Current State of Farmers Markets in BC

Posted by Chantelle Chan on June 10, 2024

Enjoy listening to this Farmer Podcast Club episode.

From the podcast series Farming in British Columbia, we are sharing their episode on the current state of farmer’s markets in BC, featuring Wylie Bystedt.

Released April 17th 2024

“My guest today is Wylie Bystedt, a farmer based in Quesnel and the current board chair of the British Columbia Association of Farmers Markets. Wylie joined me on the phone to trumpet a recent study conducted at the University of Northern British Columbia that confirms what Wylie already knew: that farmers markets in BC are growing in popularity and economic impact. We’ll talk about that study, as well as the current state of farmer’s markets in BC, and Wylie will tell you what she thinks farmers markets need in order to be even better.

Wylie’s ranch is called Coyote Acres and is based in Quesnel.”
