make. bake. grow. gather. A new way to connect with your food & community.
At the Downtown Chilliwack Community Market, we believe in food security, education, and in local crafters, artists and makers.
DCCM is a weekly summer market where local growers, crafters, and gatherers can connect their products with their community, and where the people of Chilliwack can find locally grown, gathered and crafted, quality food and goods.
DCCM is a space where new relationships can form, and thrive, around those offerings – regardless of our backgrounds, ages, or means. DCCM is an inclusive space and works towards achieving accessibility for all.
As part of the Downtown Chilliwack Farmer’s Market family, you can expect a friendly community environment, marketing support, and boundless enthusiasm.
Meet Maria! The DCCM Market Manager for the 2021 Season
I am a farmer first and understand the difficulties local farms face in offering their products to their communities. After 25 years working for the government, I decided to focus on my passion of farming by working to ensure local people can connect with their food and goods.
I have over 4 years experience managing markets in the Lower Mainland as well as my own farm in mission: The Lion and Lamb Heritage Farm where I grow pesticide-free vegetables, fruit, eggs, nuts and raise horses, sheep, goats, chickens and more.
I am excited about assisting the Chilliwack in connecting people with local farmers markets!
