Langley Eats Local
Langley Eats Local is an annual event that celebrates the abundance of our region with a fantastic lineup of local vendors and activities for the whole family. Explore the diversity of what is produced in Langley and nearby, from vegetables to breads, cheeses, berries, wines and more. Join us to celebrate our local farmers and producers who care for this delicious array of ingredients, all the way from their field to your plate. Langley Eats Local is a weeklong event, starting August 7, 2019 with the Eat Local Challenge and a Farm Gate Passport, and ending with a celebration at the Langley Community Farmers Market on August 14th. We invite everyone to celebrate with us as we feature kid’s activities, local appetizer sampling from Chef Adrian Beatty, and more! For more information, contact our Agriculture Program Coordinator Amanda at [email protected].
Take the Challenge
Festivities kick off with the Eat Local Challenge, where community members pledge to source as much of their food as possible from local producers for the week leading up to Langley Eats Local. Support farmers by sourcing foods that were grown and processed locally – or use what’s growing in your own backyard. Take the Challenge to embark on a guided exploration of all our region has to offer with helpful emails pointing to resources in your own neighbourhood. For information on the 2019 Eat Local Challenge visit our blog.
Support Local Farms

Join Us at the Langley Community Farmers Market
Langley Eats Local takes place on a regular market day in early August. Each year promises more fun than the last, with all kinds of activities for the whole family. While younger kids dig for potatoes and hunt for ‘eggs’ and their older siblings follow a scavenger hunt around the market, those with more adult tastes can sample a selection of appetizers created by Langley localvore chef, Adrian Beaty. (Tickets for the sampling will be sold in advance at the Farmers Market and the LEPS office, with any unsold tickets available at the event.) And don’t forget the food and craft vendors at every turn, farm resources and activities, and tasty prizes to be won! We hope to see you at the Market in August!
